Very touching piece. It shares a father's dream of adventure and memory of a lost
son in his communion with solitude and the sea. We so often forget that going to sea is rekindling a primal relationship we have lost
with Nature and our inner self. And for some, this communion has recuperative powers. So much of our daily lives are spent in the vacuous pursuit of sustenance and mindless goals that we become numb to the healing powers of Nature and its importance to our lives. For Paul, like some of us, the memories will remain but life will continue forward as we are enriched by our meaningful experiences.
