Story Time!! The water was still today. And I had a few minutes before my business meeting to take in the sights and sounds. I'm always drawn in by the water, the charm of boat names, the sound of rigging on tall majestic masts and the peace from a quick stroll down some quiet marina planks. The dock - home to stories of adventures at sea, tales of sailors and seamen for nautical miles.
Coming back, I passed a very youthful looking lady on the dock bench, and asked, "which one is yours?" She replied, oh, we're moored out a little ways, we just rowed in to see some friends. We chatted a bit about the magnificence of boats and she mentioned she was 70 years old, continuing to live her dream on their catamaran. I was amazed and said "that just isn't possible...you look so young." She says, a lifetime of sailing will keep you young. So we nodded and smiled in agreement and then said goodbye. Walking away I was filled with such a contented energy from our exchange. Maybe a simple reminder that we all have a lifetime of something that will keep us young, if we check into our passions, and align ourselves with what makes us feel youthful and free. .
