As the ferry heads to sea this night,
The memories are clear as day.
That trip I took from Rhodes to Athens by boat
20 hr ride seemed like an eternity or glimpse thereof.
Finding a corner of the upper deck, I began to read a story about a spiritual seeker. Walled in a cave until he
Found his inner enlightenment, so akin to my journey then
All those years traveling made me much more comfortable in transit that stationary. Boats, airports, trains felt like my home. Speaking to the captains then, realizing a kindred soul feeling centered in movement. Tonight as I head to my island home, I feel a gratitude for the experiences that made me feel safe at sea when not anchored.
