Weird stuff has been going on since I last wrote. My fiance and I split, I returned to my third summer as a sailboat captain in the Chesapeake, then found a job on a schooner when that job ended. Now I am a deckhand on the schooner Virginia, based in Norfolk. I haven't done much writing and haven't missed it. Writing may turn out to be a fool's errand, I'm not entirely sure yet. Anyway, here's a picture of me and the rest of the crew from the schooner. Their website, by the way, is schoonervirginia.org. Wish us all luck, eh?
Before I go, one more picture. This one of me and one of the best sailors aboard. Here we're striking an angry pose to represent our working relationship.
