As I sit here anchored at the Salt Pond on Block Island 1 month from departure, under the Star Filled Sky I ponder what lies ahead.
What does lie ahead?
More stars, more thoughts, hard work, moments, memories created - I think of that, but also what brought us here, what brought ME here. A Jersey Girl sitting on a beautiful 47 foot Beneteau beauty under a star clustered sky. Stars, like the ocean, showing all the depth and beauty nature can muster.
Here because of a dream started and inspired by the Conway Sailors (our close friends), the knowledge of sailing known to my husband (who grew up in New Zealand and sailed for the first time with his dad at the age of 8) and me. Me, what do I bring to the equation besides this blog?
Hopefully more than just homeschooling teacher, more than wife, more than friend....quite possibly and hopefully bringing my open heart to a new place, a new experience.
Then, affording those around me a glance of honesty and humbled awereness of the beauty and pull of the universe.
The opportunity to draw in that awareness and decipher it the best Lana Rae way I know how - and share it with those who may not be able to see what I see. To share it with those I love.
A new land, a new sea, a new opportunity to be organic me.
Quite possibly - that IS what I offer during this journey. My part of the equation.
