A ship in port is safe, but that's not what ships are built for. - Grace Murray Hopper
It is at this moment so late in life that I understand all of this sailing along the shoreline was practice. After all the checking of the sails and the ropes and my hands being calloused with understanding, I know that I was meant to chart my own course. I have left it so late now, that the shoreline is not only all I know, it is all I feel I am experienced enough to understand. I see land on one side, and the endless horizon of sky and sea on the other.
