Dancing with Gaia

Dancing with Gaia

Cruising maybe is like dancing
and there are so many ways to do it

It makes little sense to judge a ballerina on their hip hop skills


or a line dancer for their ability to freestyle

For me, I think, sailing is like a tango


Slow, quick, quick, slow


Slow, quick, quick, slow


all the while following the lead 
of Gaia


The seasons


The wind


The weather


The waves

Dancing under the stars


Dancing over the seas

Getting from one place to the other


Not in a clean, straight line


But there is a pattern

Slow, quick, quick, slow


Slow, quick, quick, slow

You need to learn and plan the steps when setting foot on the dance floor


but once you’re there, you’ve got to stop overthinking


You’ve got to feel it instead


Go with the flow, be in the moment


And listen to the music, whatever style it may be

For me, the music is in the beauty of nature


in the people we meet


in the lives they live


in the foods we try


in the conversations we have

in the connections we make

and music is meaningless without silence between the notes.

Slow, quick, quick, slow


Slow, quick, quick, slow

Every place a new song


The dance goes on

Go out there and find your music.
