Sunday Messages

Eighteen of Unity's finest showed up on this bright, warm day for
fellowship and good hard work to spruce up the gardens at our church.

There was lots of weeding, clearing, and carrying
to the dump for recycling .......…  Then we all stopped at noon to break bread and visit.

All in all is was a glorious day.

 LIVING ON THE PENINSULA ~ THE LIVING END COLUMN

SUMMER 2015 ~ THE BOATING LIFE EDITION

Pam Douglas-Smith


ANCHORS AWAY!


This time of year, the Salish Sea offers an invitation to all who live on the Olympic Peninsula.  Come out from your fireside hearth as you respond to the beckoning call of the surrounding waters.  Let the fresh breezes blow through the open windows of your home and your heart.  Open to embrace the lengthening days that enlighten your world and your soul.  Walk upon the beaches with winter driftwood still decorating the shores to find treasures anew.  And let the boats all slide from trailers and be hoisted from dry docks to return to the waters that surround us in such abundance.


The Season of the Boat is upon us in glorious abandon.  From the first weekend in May with the official initiation of boating all around the Peninsula to the internationally known Wooden Boat Festival, the waters come alive with the sound of sails being hoisted, engines revving and paddles quietly dipping into the waters.  Wherever you journey on the Salish Sea shorelines of the Olympic Peninsula, boats will captivate your imagination and remind you of the glory of freedom.  Each a vessel of adventure, however large or small.


For here on the Peninsula, the infinite variety of nature’s beauty is matched with its creative expression of sea going vessels.  Some days it even looks as though there is a rush hour made of wood and fiberglass, of sail and power, of water and waves.  So much nicer than the familiar one of concrete roads and car horns.  From tiny hand crafted kayaks that almost become one with the water to the deep drone of large ferries filled with cars and people.  From the Glacier Spirit tour boat speeding toward pods of Orca whales to wild contraptions teetering close to shore for the Kinetic Sculpture Race. Cruisers, sailboats, dories, scows, kayaks, canoes and more.  And if lucky, a special treat as time seems to disappear when the Schooner Adventuress glides across the waters under full sail or the canoes of the First People come across the waters filled with youth to take their rest upon our shores.  All reminding us how elemental is our love of the waters and our desire to become one with it.

 

The Salish Sea calls us all out into nature.  Whether we have a boat ourselves or not, they capture our attention and imagination.  It is an honored tradition that each boat is graced with its own special name.  One carefully selected by the creator or owner to capture the essence of what they envision the craft will be for them.  Sometimes funny, sometimes poignant.  Some planned and others inspired by a whim.  All worth noticing as they travel over the waves or rock gently in their slips if one seeks deeper communion.

For the building of a boat and its naming is sacred for those who love the sea.  Antoine de Saint-Exupery saw it as a reflection of how we can create our lives with more passion if we listen to this special wisdom.  For the birth of a boat, its launching and its journeying is not pure logic . . . it is magic and adventure calling.  He wrote:


If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them  tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.


Sea going vessels are a reminder that we, too, are meant to journey forth.  It is so easy to get stuck in daily routine and life’s expectations.  We find ourselves looking at the ground where we take one step at a time, rather than raising our vision to the horizon.  As the boats return to the seas this summer, let us return to the possibilities of new adventures. To inspire us, there is a wonderful quote from Grace Hopper:


A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships were made for.


To set out across the Salish Sea or any other unknown territory, one must have the courage to do so.  For the safety of the harbor is a crucial part of the journey.  Unless one is rested and has prepared in advance, the voyage holds far more perils.  If sails are not tended and engines tuned, how easy to find one at the mercy of the tides above and rip currents below.  But, if one stays there, one becomes trapped and stagnant.  There are waters to travel, sunlight to bask in, new vistas to behold, and new adventures to embrace.  All waiting for you to journey forth.

Remember the words of Louisa May Alcott when she wrote:


I’m not afraid of the storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship.


The open sea is calling.  Your life is calling.  It is said that the winds of grace are blowing all the time and we have only to raise our sails.  How can you do that this summer?  Look to the vessels all around you and let them inspire you.


Some who are reading this article have been shaking their heads since reading the title, Anchors Away. I’m hoping your love of boats has allowed you to sail along with me thus far.  For as you know, the accurate spelling of the term is “Anchors Aweigh.”  For those of you new to the term, it means the moment the anchor is fully aboard so the vessel is officially underway.  But for those less nautical, it truly means to put the “anchors away” so one can sail forth.  That is what this season is calling you to do.  However you spell it.  Pull up your anchors, set your eye to the horizon and sail forth.  It’s time.
