Ed. A wonderful evocation of following ones' heart, and illustration that some of life's most sublime riches are not measured in coin.

That was an envelope that I wrote on yesterday and then clicked a digital pic. I don't have hardly anything from those days any more expect a lot of memories. In 2001, I lost that boat on a rock while entering Five Islands Antigua in the middle of the night. But that's another story.
