Exciting news, but here’s the main problem with a little boat;

Proper posts coming soon, having a little trouble with connectivity (and time management!)

Cable Ties

June 25, 2014 at 8:06 pm

I’m well into the electrical stuff now and just wanted to share this with you as it tickled me… I think there’s a touch of cabin fever though.

Oh, and to be clear, I didn’t put all those cable ties on there:  I wouldn’t have done so many.

A Wanderer’s Song

April 8, 2014 at 4:06 pm

A WIND’S in the heart of me, a fire’s in my heels,
I am tired of brick and stone and rumbling wagon-wheels;
I hunger for the sea’s edge, the limit of the land,
Where the wild old Atlantic is shouting on the sand.

Oh I’ll be going, leaving the noises of the street,
To where a lifting foresail-foot is yanking at the sheet;
To a windy, tossing anchorage where yawls and ketches ride,
Oh I’ll be going, going, until I meet the tide.

And first I’ll hear the sea-wind, the mewing of the gulls,
The clucking, sucking of the sea about the rusty hulls,
The songs at the capstan at the hooker warping out,
And then the heart of me’ll know I’m there or thereabout.

Oh I am sick of brick and stone, the heart of me is sick,
For windy green, unquiet sea, the realm of Moby Dick;
And I’ll be going, going, from the roaring of the wheels,
For a wind’s in the heart of me, a fire’s in my heels.
