I'm going to do some long term traveling on a sailboat some time in the next few years, looking for someone to go with me. Life is to short to work, watch TV and repeat.To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen, who play with their boats at sea – “cruising,” it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and to the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.
I’ve always wanted to sail to the South Seas, but I can’t afford it.” What these men can’t afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of “security.” And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine – and before we know it our lives are gone.
What does a man need – really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in – and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That’s all – in the material sense. And we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention from the sheer idiocy of the charade.
The years thunder by. The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it the tomb is sealed.
Where, then, lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be: bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life? Those are the words of Sterling Haydon, great author, sums up the way I think about life. I'm confident and shy at the same time,I'm an introvert, I like all types of music and food. I'm nice ,laid back and a good conversationalist , but I don't cry and Im very protective over someone if I care about them. I do my best to eat healthy and stay fit, can't be with someone who dose not do the same. No smokers, unless your planning on quitting soon. I prefer no makeup, low maintenance. To me the most important attributes in a relationship are loyalty and trust.
