A BEAUTIFUL WORLD…
I hoisted the sails and pulled anchor. Slowly moving out of the slip, I watched the morning color rise and deepen in the sky. The breeze caught a wisp of my hair to tickle my neck. Moving toward the horizon, I marveled at the beauty of the world.
Leaving home for college, I was finally in charge of my life. The world was my playground, the ocean my private lake. “Watch me,” I waved back to my parents, “I’m sailing! All by myself!”
Map? Compass? Destination? I was off to see the world…anything…and everything. And when you are traveling on uncharted waters, who needs a map!
