“What she really loved was to hang over the edge and watch the bow of the ship slice through the waves. She loved it especially when the waves were high and the ship rose and fell, or when it was snowing and the flakes stung her face.”
Kristin Cashore, Graceling    

“I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.
John F. Kennedy

Sailing takes me away to where I’ve always heard it could be
Just a dream and the wind to carry me
And soon I will be free

Come sail with me...

Cartoon-doodle and caption by me.
The cartoon-doodles may be shared, printed and stuck to walls, refrigerators and cubicle partitions.

I can only imagine some of the far corners of the world where this cartoon-doodle may wash up.

If you liked this and shared it with someone who you would love to take sailing, drop me a note, a comment or a message in the proverbial bottle.
