Hello, I'm Henry.  

Welcome aboard my blog's home. 

If you come along with me, you'll become acquainted with my motley mates and faithful crew:

Experiences, Sightings, Observations, Impressions, Ideas, Reflections, Remembrances, Insights and Commentary.

They, after all, have accompanied me for as long as I can recall. Their tenure has helped me turn my tiller, fill my sails, and transport me over seas to distant lands. Maybe if you take the time to get to know them, a few will do the same for you.

Click this way and scroll along if you please...Enjoy your stay.

The Future has Finally Arrived

Sailing to Mars

When I was a kid, I imagined sailing to the moon or Mars.  In my fantasy and idealism, I thought it would be possible.  The forces of wind, water, waves and weather seemed so powerful to me at such an early age sailing anywhere seemed to fit within the realm of possibility.  And today, the sailing part seems highly probable, but instead of the seas pushing and propelling, it will be solar waves powering sails or kites to far off planets.  

Concept from almost 40 years ago.
