September 22, 2007-Zen Moment

One More Mark Rounding, Western Circuit Regatta, August 2007

There is a whole world outside of the 40 foot circle of space which is Wings but at moments like this we don't know about it.

In these moments we are, each of us, inwardly focused into the world of this vessel, this place, this time; into the reality of right now. The rest of the world does not exist for us in this moment. We are are here, we are now, we are onboard Wings, and we have a job to do.

For a mark rounding like this we each have our own challenge to face. Each of us has a task to perform. We each know our own assignment and we each focus on that assignment and know that we must do it, and we will do it. Yes we have our mates to help us and we trust that our mates will do their jobs too; but for this moment we are completely focused into our own private challenges. Nothing else exists, we do our jobs.

We are eight persons just living for right now, for this boat, for this task, for these shipmates, for this Zen.

Fred & Judy, SV Wings, Singapore
