Home is the sailor, home from sea:
Her far-borne canvas furled
The ship pours shining on the quay
The plunder of the world. ~ A. E. Housman
Now don't be silly - I know I'm not a "real" sailor, but I did, in fact, just return from a ten-day sailing adventure that literally and figuratively rocked my world. I got a real taste of adventure - Abacos-style! But that doesn't really qualify me as a "sailor" although, as my Dad rightly points out, I am the daughter of a US Navy Sailor and darn proud of it!
