A Salty Captain

I've quietly followed your posts over the years utterly in awe of what you were doing and how you went about it. The news about Empress is heartbreaking. But you are captain. The etymology of "captain" is from Greek, "the one on top." It may not seem like it now, but undoubtedly you have greater perspective, greater vantage, ... and yes, you remain captain.

Introducing my new blog...A Girl ReBorn: The Island Version. All about moving to St Croix, USVI.
And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are...

Where should I live this summer?  My downtown apartment, or my boat?
Today is the last day to vote!  I will announce the results (and my decision) tomorrow...

Here's a quote from the results: "At some point, if you have too many homes, you really don't have a home. You are a Gypsy. Or homeless."

Major decision made by vote!Trying to decide if I should keep my downtown Cincinnati apartment for the summer. My lease is up at the end of April. I love living downtown...love the apartment...would love to have a home-base for all of the things I do downtown (Aronoff subscription, MPMF, my new favorite bar (Knockback Nat's, etc). However, I could give up the apartment and move back onto the boat for the Spring, Summer and Fall (for those of you who don't know...I lived ...

Another Quote from the "Where Should TRacy Live" survey:

"You can't take the money with when you go so enjoy it while you're alive. Keep both and do both. Nothing says you have to stay in one place."

Accepting votes, still:

The end of an era...The Empress Bennu is For Sale
