“Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.” ― Dalai Lama

When life spins out of control seek out a simple pleasure.

We can live vicariously through tv shows and movies. We can watch sporting events from our favorite chair. Or, we can get out and live our own lives.

Some days you just have to make your own sunshine.

Why do people so often want to hurt and harm others? I think there is a lot of truth in the theory that people are mean to others in order to feel better about themselves.

Flowers don't need to hurt other flowers in order to look good. They just bloom and look gorgeous.

I see it in your social media posts everyday. Some have a real heart and love towards each other and show it. Others are so full of hate they can't recognize their hate is as bad as the ones they talk about.

My grandmother looked after and took care of me throughout my childhood. Tucked away in her drawer was a hand written copy of this poem. It was how she lived. Show each other kindness.

Bring Me All Your Flowers Now

I would rather have a single rose
From the garden of a friend,
Than have the choicest flowers,
When my stay on earth must end.

I would rather have the kindest words
Which may now be said to me,
Than flattered when my heart is still-
And this life has ceased to be.

I would rather have a loving smile
From the friends I know are true,
Than tears shed 'round my casket,
When this world I've bade adieu!

Bring me all your flowers,
Whether pink, or white, or red.
I'd rather have one blossom now
Than a truck load when I'm dead!

-R.D. RICHARDS

The Catalina 22 MKII comes with a standard ice chest as a companionway step and a table in the center of the cabin floor.

 

We decided to see if we could make some modifications to open up the cabin a bit more.

An argument could be made that the 2020 Catalina 22 Northern Gulf Coast Cruise never happened. Some of us, however; may disagree.

Every year for nearly a quarter of a century the Catalina 22 Northern Gulf Coast Cruise has been a favorite cruising experience for Catalina 22 sailors. Over the years many of our sailing friends have moved on to other boats but there are still a few of us left that love the C22 and the camaraderie that comes with it.

"Yes. In the garden, growth has it seasons. First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter. And then we get spring and summer again."
 
"As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden."
The amazing thing about sailing is the ability to get away. Let your imagination set you free.
