Impermanent harbor

It's a dream, I think, for many of us -- to be  floating freely, in calm, protected waters; to have the capacity to drift and explore paired with the option of remaining firmly tethered to solid ground.  Clarity, simplicity, security -- it's all good.

But what's the point of having a boat if we don't take it out once in a while; if we're not willing to step out of our comfort zones and into new adventures?  It's a new year now, and you have everything you need.  What will you do, as Mary Oliver asks, with your one wild and precious life?
