Bro Paul

To all my relations….
Tonight I celebrate a warrior whose spirit will be forever with us, a role model to those who live and love in light and fight for the less fortunate, whose passion will ignite a fire within us to serve good and heal us. Forever my brother Paul, wherever you are I know you are looking out for us. Amen.

Steve Jobs RIP

Safe travels, star child.

More to come… (more…)

Ok Second Post

well I have been out for a great day sailing and with an invite to go to Martha’s Vineyard aboard a 65′ Vagabond cruiser.  She is big, and heavy, and beautiful.  The day was awesome for sailing to Old Orchard Shoal Light in Raritan Bay, across the Ambrose Channel from our ‘little bathtub’ as I like to call Rockaway Inlet.

I did get some snaps off of the trip – which I think reflects the day well: (more…)
