Story
Tagline
Former Transpac racer and Kaneohe, HI, sailor, currently on a two-month, blue-water cruise on the Pacific Ocean that hasn't so far stopped my social media output. (So glad for geosynchronous satellite communications.)
Introduction
Usually sailing the sheltered waters of British Columbia and Washington State from 49º 16' N 123º 07' W | Occasionally, you'll find some of my and others' sailing haiku and haikai no renga on this feed.| More often than not, I'll also offer my point-of-view on current world affairs, especially those of a geopolitical bent.

now the winds and tides
decide course, destinations—
three knots is top speed
—Captain Gigi (Thanks, Philip Teece)

all my travels, just so much
slogging around in the mire,
and all those haiku?
squiggles of light in the water...
—David Young, "Foraging" (1986)

Any piece of knowledge I acquire today has a value at this moment exactly proportional to my skill to deal with it. Tomorrow when I know more, I will recall this piece of knowledge and use it better. —Mark van Doren

The sail of thinking keeps trimmed hard to the wind of the matter. —Wittgenstein

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
