"She must find a boat and sail in it. No guarantee of shore. Only a conviction that what she wanted could exist, if she dared to find it." -Jeanette Winterson Sailboats, The Ocean, Art, Brent Lynch, Engagement Shoots, Sailing Away, Painting, The Sea, Sailing Boats
I went to a yard sale today and the owner said something that changed the way I think: "My buddy owned this place. Found out he has pancreatic cancer, and realized that all this materialistic shit just doesn't matter. He left all this and got a boat to go on his last fishing trip. You see that?" He pointed at the sky. "That's all he needs right now. An open sky, some trees, and water. When you're ready to check out it's just not about this materialistic shit."
