I wish I were on a cruise today. We got our first snow. It was brief, and didn't accumulate to anything, but it was snow. And I love snow and cold weather. But I want the inner peace and anticipation that each day on a cruise brings to me. Each day is full with possibilities yet to be explored and people to meet -- or avoid.
I want to sit on the back deck with my buddies and the officers and stare at the ocean as we leave it behind us. That's what I want. Time to meditate. Time to figure things out gently and gradually. Inspiration. Fuel for creativity and adventure.
I've been sleeping well this week. Dreaming strange, but not disturbing dreams. I've been on a boat sailing the seas at least once a night. I have several distinct dreams throughout a slumber. Usually three to five. I remember them all. I like the boat dreams. They are comforting.
I hope I have another one tonight. And I wish peaceful sleep to all my friends who are suffering pain and hurt from friends and foes. Even if its only for a night. To have peace for one night seems worth so much right now when so many friends are being beaten down unrightiously by internal and external causes. So I wish you all peace. And sweet dreams tonight.
