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... 

This picture reminds me that I am on a long-term trajectory to achieve some amazing life goals.  In the short term, my path may seem crazy or risky to some, but I have my eye on the horizon and know my heading.

Why do I love sailboats so much?  This picture is from the Brisbane Marina.
