nothing quite like being on the open water
i've finally done it. i went sailing yesterday with a friend from work, and i had so much fun i just can't explain. i've had a boat picked out for a few years now, but it's so big and expensive i don't know if i'll ever be able to afford it. now i'm thinking about a smaller boat; i can always upgrade, right? i'm not sure what model the boat i went sailing on was, but it's a twenty-five foot sloop that my friend uses for racing. i'm hoping to have many more opportunities to sail in the coming years.
quote of the moment:
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country... corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
