Sails always make me think of time. I’m not sure exactly why, perhaps because of the movement. But boats alone don’t feel that way, nor does water, open or not. Maybe some long lost association from childhood, or a passing comment. The mind always a gyre of secrets and stories.
I do not understand how anyone can live without one small place of enchantment to turn to. ~ Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings ~ Image “Fairytale” by Junko Tamura
Oh yes. And a very smart man, a very sick man, (both the same) once said to me, It’s imperative that you have a place in your mind where you can go when you need. You won’t always have a book nearby, or a piano, or music, or something to cling to. When you need to go somewhere to retreat. Somewhere you can survive. Well, your mind that is. I don’t know how related or connected is your you and your mind.
