November 12, 2018: Live with the grace that is free and natural

“ . . . in the minute

brilliance of cloudless days, with broad bellying sails

they glide to the wind, tossing green water . . .

In a well guarded arena of open water surrounded by

lesser and greater craft . . . they appear youthful, rare

as the light of a happy eye, live with the grace

of all that in the mind is feckless, free and

naturally to be desired.”

––William Carlos Williams: The Yachts
