Life really is a journey.
If anyone had told me 5 years ago that I would be moving aboard our HC 44 PH (that I hadn’t bought yet) with my future wife (whom I hadn’t reconnected with yet), I would consider them to be a “few stands off bottom.” This is an old oil patch term for being, of course….. crazy.
Well put away the white suit, all the above and more has transpired since 2010.
I have reconnected with my darling wife, we have gotten married, we have both sold homes, purchased a home, sold that, purchased a very tired Soul Balladeer, purchased acreage for our future forever home, and now, in 6 days, we will be moving aboard Soul Balladeer. Wow.
There are many that dream of the dream….to live a minimalist yet enriched life on a yacht. To live out of the box, or perhaps, in a box.
I can say one thing with conviction for any male contemplating such a move. Your dream will only be a fantasy unless your partner, aka the boss, is the type that approaches life as you do. How is that you ponder? Well, LIFE is a blank page that can be anything you want it to be….just write the script.
Be bold, for one day, you will be old.
So, our 4 grown children are going to be spending Christmas with us aboard this year. It will be a Christmas of connection, not consumption. I’m sure we will be bumping into one another as we navigate the passageways, but we will undoubtedly connect in a traditional sense, engage and perhaps learn more about ourselves and each other.
For me, that is the prize.
