"To be truly challenging, a voyage, like a life, must rest on a firm foundation of financial unrest. Otherwise you are doomed to a routine traverse, the kind known to yachtsmen, who play with their boats at sea -�cruising�, it is called. Voyaging belongs to seamen, and the wanderers of the world who cannot, or will not, fit in. If you are contemplating a voyage and you have the means, abandon the venture until your fortunes change. Only then will you know what the sea is all about.
�I�ve always wanted to sail the South Seas, but I can�t afford it.� What these men can�t afford is not to go. They are enmeshed in the cancerous discipline of �security�. And in the worship of security we fling our lives beneath the wheels of routine�and before we know it, our lives are gone.
What does a man need�really need? A few pounds of food each day, heat and shelter, six feet to lie down in�and some form of working activity that will yield a sense of accomplishment. That�s all�in the material sense. And we know it. But we are brainwashed by our economic system until we end up in a tomb beneath a pyramid of time payments, mortgages, preposterous gadgetry, playthings that divert our attention from the sheer idiocy of the charade.
The years thunder by. The dreams of youth grow dim where they lie caked in dust on the shelves of patience. Before we know it the tomb is sealed.
Where then lies the answer? In choice. Which shall it be bankruptcy of purse or bankruptcy of life?"

Sterling Hayden - (1916�1986)

Dang, that makes you think. How many of you have a dream/vision that you haven´t pursued because of your job, house, debts, family etc.?

I usually can't pursue my dreams because I am always broke from buying motorcycle parts. Seriously - I have a disease.

i dont dream.
lol... I used to want to sell everything and buy a boat, sail the world. But that takes money, too. Lots of it.

And I get seasick.

My collection of crap rises and falls. Right now, its falling. I've been giving a bunch of stuff away on the FreeCycle.com list. Liberating.
