Motivation Times Three

First, what motivates me more than an unexpected call to go skiing? In my present state of mind, not much else. Welcoming a new chapter in my life, skiing with friends, Simon and Krissy,  from our sailing past is remarkable…(Wishing Danny was here)

Second, what gratitude fills my heart with more than an unexpected call from a friend. Similar to me, she has crossed from one life style to another. Her reminder of the power of an ‘ant’ led me to copy the words to Frank Sinatra’s song “High Hopes.” If an ant can move a rubber tree plant, surely Max and I can move mountains…

Third, what sailboat intrigues me more than any other style than a try. Whether sailing my 17 foot Windrider or sailing offshore on my 35 foot Marples, tris are the way to go. Relatively fast and relatively flip over proof like my sailing friend Suky, we shall forever lust over these fine designs. Oh yea, what motivated me today was that I finally read a comment in which Suky reminded me of a typo. Need to change a prior post on Validation from listing to lusting…

If you believe in things coming in threes, well today was my day.

Cheers and please remember to provide me with feedback, check me out on facebook (can’t believe I am addicted to it) or zip me an e-mail: sassythesailor@gmail.com

Homo or Neo

“23 and Me” is a company that provides information about one’s past based on a DNA sample. Their report includes the belief that modern people evolved from either Homo Sapiens or Neanderthals. Learning about the traits of each revealed that I evolved from Homo Sapiens. Someone dear to me evolved from Neanderthal. This determination was based on a single trait noted in some of the research. Neanderthals tend to be hairy. You know those people with dark long hair on their legs, arms and back.  Further intrigue about this concept came from a book by Robert Fritz, Your Life as Art. Fritz contends that as a civilization Homo Sapiens created art. Neanderthals did not.

As research continues let us hope one’s ancestors adds interest to the differences that make each of us interesting. No longer will we only consider race, religion, and nationality. Now we will ask, “So, are you homo or neo?”  Let us hope it matters not as to how relationships will evolve…
