Background and another personal insight into this time in my life.

[This was written in 2009]

 

This tree, literally blown in on a hurricane to the legendary flats at heavenly Harbour Island, in the Bahamas, is just one of the most beautiful pictures I've ever taken.

 

Just like the tree, the storms of life in the last year have uprooted my life. I've been buffeted by tidal economic waves that swept over me and many others, compounded by emotional earthquakes and family loss.

 

And the gusts of fate and disappointment in people supposedly closest to me, like a hurricane, have left me at the mercy of the merciless world, like this tree.... stripped to the core, drowning in incoming tides, then exposed to the burning blue sky....

 

But, like it, I'm still standing.

 

And, wherever, whenever, I spread and establish roots - for new shoots and blossoms - it will be my own new personal paradise, like this magical spot.

 

Blessed to fly over the world's most beautiful places, and yacht in the most heavenly of waters, I am The Patient Mariner. My ship is here as I await the arrival of my beautiful soulmate and sail-mate on the timeless oceans of time.

 

Always Believe. The darkest clouds have golden linings.

Even nights come with promises of new dawns and tomorrows.
