A Self published book of Short Stories of my Travels around the world
Stacks Image 2818
Last summer I began writing short stories from my travels around the world. I was eighteen years old when I first left these shores. Though I did not realize it at the time, I was embarking upon an eleven year journey, and an educational experience that would help to shape my life forever.
As I write these words, another ten years have gone by since I left the Navy. And yet there is little I’ve forgotten. How could I? I’ve spent hundreds of day of every season at sea, sailing sea after sea, and I can tell you that there is more than seven.

I became one of a million or more sailors who’ve passed through time, who can boast of requited love relationship with the sea, of days of clear blue skies and nights where the stars alone light the ski. To experience sunrise and sunset at sea is to experience the full beauty of God’s imagination.

I discovered that every ocean has its own unique personality, that the Pacific is welcoming, the Atlantic broods, the Antarctic is as silent as the moon, and the Indian Ocean, with it’s atmosphere of mystery, burns like the Sahara.

My eyes have taken billions of photographs of the countless scenes of my travels, travels that have taken me so far away from my beginnings and so far beyond my dreams. The image of my face is locked in the memories of many and theirs are locked in mine.

I’m beached no,never to see the world by sea again. But I know the seas will not forget me, nor the eleven years we spent together.
