Inspiration: Patience is a name for the collected storehouse of experience and wisdom gained thereby.
Today: An old sea captain bides his time for he knows the shifting of the tides, feels it in his bones, sees the signs of wind and wave.
When the old sea captain rocks, he is between times of setting sail and returning to harbour. Think of it as a trough, a channel worn between times of activity wherein the doldrum seas call for rocking chair shores. In human attitude and behaviour, this is patience… and experienced knowing.
Listen for a tale or two about past adventures and gypsy ways now salted with briny time, dressed for show and rhyme. It may sound idle and unproductive but within all rhythms there is a pause.
Consider this: you are experienced. Life has taught a thing or two. Honour the fact that your whole being just knows when to set sail again… and when to wait.
