Almost year ago today, I had just come back from the Inside Passage. I learned a lot about myself and life. Staring at the strange scenes of masked humans in front of my house today, I can’t help but feel lucky to have been able to go at all.

If you’re thinking about going on a voyage, any trip really, the time to go is soon. There will be other trips, but don’t get too caught up in planning and waiting. You never know what will happen.

No matter how long you have, take your time. Explore the edge and see what’s right where you are. There’s nothing better around the corner. And you never know what might wander along to enhance your view.

Or make you smile…
