The Slow Lane

boy exploring

What does it take to get a fourteen year old boy to try to catch a crab with a stick?

It’s not coercion or suggestion.

It’s time.  When you have the time to slow down and soak in a place, you can really relax and enjoy life.

wakeYou can watch the bubbles in your wake recede toward distant islands.

dawnYou can feel the dew evaporate off the gunwale as dawn rises.

sea starYou can count the spots on a sea star’s back.

toroOr you can just ghost along.

After all, do you have anyplace more important to be on a nice day than on the water?
