To sail

The ocean is a great and awesome force. I’ve often enjoyed the vastness of the ocean from the safety of shore, whether it’s wading along the sandy beaches, from 30k feet up in the sky, or admiring it’s beauty from cliffs up above. You an see the gentle ripples of the water as the wind…

If a Tree Falls…

  … in the forest and no one’s around to hear it, does it make a sound? Tangentially, if you do something and it’s not posted on social media, did it really happen? It may feel as if I’m recycling some thoughts, and that does seem the be the case more often than not ever…

And with all the expected shenanigans of NYE/NYD, we booked…

As the train ran through Northern England, we…
