The Discovery show Deadliest Catch is about crab fisherman in Alaska who risk their lives aboard 50-140ft boats in order to catch the crab we eat all over the United States. At times the wind in the Bering Sea produces waves that are 30-60 feet tall. Turning the boat around in this kind of weather can take 20 minutes.
Light is sweet, and it pleases the eyes to see the sun.
Many today are buried with their work and busy with the routines of life – routines we rarely think about because we’re so busy.
We need free days – days to do nothing but consider life – to read books and watch trees blow in the wind and see documentaries. We need time to just see the sun and enjoy it. “Impossible,” we might say, “I have so much to do.” Then the first step is loosing ourselves from some of those demands.
Free days and free hours are the space where we turn our lives. There’s no real order to it and, in the stormy waters of life, it usually takes a long time – maybe years – but eventually – gradually – we find a way free from the life we didn’t want.
Make time to see the sun and turn your life.
