Ah, today the sun has been shining bright. The wind is strong and the sails are trimmed perfectly. We are all physically exhausted but sleeping as the sea gently rocks us at night. I continue to keep the mid watch which starts before dawn; my best time for learning and reflection. The schedule gives me plenty of time during the day to read, write and meditate. On a bright clear day with azure blue sky and no clouds, the wind is quite welcome. This is the kind of day when Id goes wild and my mates are urinating off the deck with humorous abandon (good thing I am clinically-oriented and surprised by nothing). I can’t stop laughing with these guys.
