Everyone has a photographic memory, but not everyone has film. Thanks to digital, and my trusted camera, who cares. Just point and shoot, and you capture snapshots of moments. I'm an extremely talkative  person.  Yet I like taking pictures because  they speak for themselves.  



Wish Fulfillment  and The  Law Of Attraction


My definition of Thinking is when your  mind is separate from your  body: Some call it dreaming. I call it using your imagination. It is the preview of life's coming attractions. That's when you can leap long distances,  go forward and backward  in time, walk  through solid brick walls and never age, 


My definition of Magical Thinking,  or MT, is when we can manufacture experiences in our mind, and then later, attract these situations into our life.  The mind IS, after all, what the brain DOES. Put simply, you  attract into your  life whatever you consistently think about.  I always go back to the importance of being Ernest (Hemingway) That is what we are supposed to do when we are at our best --make it all up --but make it up so truly that later it will happen that way.

A Man's Home Is His Wife's Castle

There will always be an England, even if it is in Hollywood.  In fact, it makes me think of  Monarchs,  all the  knights in shining armor movies and Brothers Grimm tales of  Rapunzel,  princesses, and royalty.

English castles  are such a common sight in the UK. I wonder what the upkeep on this brick and mortar version is.  If I had that kind of money I wouldn't come to England, I'd send for it.

Walking On Water

No Pool. No Problem. I have the sea and beach. Its voice speaks to my  soul. Why do "I love water"so much?   It not only permits  my  mind to be empty and clear, but enforces it because  time doesn't move hour to hour but wave to wave.

If Hollywood is loneliness by the swimming pool, then solitude is a walk on the beach.

Living on a ship  might be summed up as monotony tinged with hysteria. 


The Patron Saint of  Optimism-Another dopeless hope fiend!


Geography is the topography of ignorance, a finite disappointment not only  when the map becomes the territory, but when you actually visit these hole in the wall places. In most cases, it's a lot better to transcend reality with imagination, re-framing the conversation. "Melbourne was awesome", "Ghana? Amazing!" India? a magical delight".  


Nevertheless,  there is not one ship that doesn't sail to a port where life is not uncomfortable. The future just isn't what it used to be. Yet, you don't quit countries, you quit people, and I have to say the best ships are friendships, and I have met some amazing people while sailing around the world.


Impossible Is Nothing


Going out to sea is  the infinity of hope, the preview of life's coming attractions where you have final cut in your own movie.  You can lose yourself in the ocean's food for thought. Its  menu is the meal,  and itineraries are full of promises. It gives you a  sense of destination and the energy to get started again.


The weather is here wish you were beautiful
Call it faith!  A passion for the possible. I am full of it, and shooting from the hip that is to say,   having an adventure is something more but nothing less than bad planning.  When I cold-called for my first ship job, and got it after a 12 minute elevator pitch, I began to trust myself, and only when you trust yourself can you truly begin to live it up.


  

But I'm not a sailor . Maybe a sailor  with a small s. Living on a ship,  however, might be summed up as monotony tinged with hysteria. It's not real life but an alibi. It  is like going out of your mind everyday- in order to come to your senses; and a fool who persists in his folly becomes wise. After 9 ships, yes nine, I no longer want to cast doubt on perfection-America.  There's nothing I wouldn't do for my country , and there's nothing it  wouldn't do for me. And that's the way we go through life - doing nothing for each other. 


Embracing the life forced upon me, I have had  nothing to do and all day to do it. An accident of birth, being born in the USA,  I won the geographically-desirable-places-to-live-on-the-planet lottery, and have squandered my inheritence in the United States of Unconsciousness, a shared hallucination of "any place but here" and " the grass is greener". 


The grass is greener where you water it.

Land Lubber or Lover?
Finally, I am not on the sea, but  here  on dry land at Worthing Beach, with the English Channel in background.Shipwrecked on time, stranded on the present, it's a. gift of 86,400 seconds today. I used one to say "thank you". I am starting to realize, If I had my life to live over again, I wouldn't have time.Point A to Point B has become a lifestyle.

Out To Lunch


I'm gonna rent my house in the shade of the freeway.
I'm gonna pack my lunch in the morning and go to work each day.


This is no Frank Sinatra New York, New York, , no Jay-Z Empire State of Mind; more like Jackson Browne's, The Pretender. today, while I meet up  with The Office crowds. I am in transit on my way to England. London's calling.

I Need My Space!
Space Travel Sure Is Fun


Lunatics!
With a bit of zero-gravity thinking, impossible is nothing!
Let the meek inherit the earth. I'm walking on the moon today. The sky is no longer the limit.
