Boat Quote - Sometimes we need fog

“There are some things you learn best in calm, and some in storm” ~ Willa Cather

Willa Cather was an American writer in the early 1900s who reflected on life on the Great Plains. As pioneers moved west, they created new lives and learned many lessons both during storms and in moments of calm. 

Recently, a very dear friend passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. In the midst of the grief storm that followed, I found calm as we anchored in secluded anchorages such as B.C.’s Tod Inlet. I could reflect, cry, remember and grieve surrounded by beauty and peace. And sitting there quietly, I felt her presence and truly began the grieving process.

The lessons learned sitting there calmly remain as I re-enter the hustle and bustle of day-to-day life. Our lives are forever changed with this loss but we can learn from it.

Stay safe and happy cruising!
