Well, in non-sailing terms, you might say I'm "shifting to neutral." (Heaving-to is actually a brilliant tactic in sailing that you can read about here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heaving_to)
It's been an exciting few months: I explored Croatia by land and sea. I crossed the South Pacific Ocean for the second time. I road tripped over 1,200 miles along the California and Oregon coasts. I was assaulted and robbed in Eureka, California.
Now, as 2017 kicks into gear, I am actually shifting to neutral. Shifting to neutral not in terms of progressing toward my goals, but in terms of posting journal updates.
I have a few things to figure out. I'm talking to a couple of sailing and volunteering organizations about opportunities; and so as to not bore my handful of readers, I will be slowing down my posts. I won't post weekly, but perhaps every two or three weeks -- trying as best I can to stick to Mondays. Of course, given that it's Wednesday evening, I've already missed the deadline. Or maybe I'm just really early for next Monday's update.
Regardless, I hope you continue to check my site and read my posts from time to time. I remain excited, optimistic, and committed to where this new path is taking me. I can't wait to share more.
In the meantime, I'm happy to be "home" on the Bay...
