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.   

Wooden SailBoat Builder

Wooden SailBoat Builder

When I saw this video, it made me contemplate mankind's relationship with trees and wood, as well as man's love for wooden boats. I thought of my father who built small boats for a hobby - The White Rabbit. And I thought of the incredible journey trees travel to help humans create..

Trees are amazing.  They give us so much; they provide shade, shelter, beauty, wood, sap, fruits, oxygen and climbs by merely being.  They simply give unconditionally. They expect nothing in return. And like people or boats, no two are the same.... But what is truly awesome about trees is that they often give us more than other humans give to each other more than we often realize.

This blog post is dedicated to those who create and construct from Nature's gifts.  To those who offer unconditional love without expecting anything in return. And to those who have the vision and hand skills to work with wood and make something as beautiful as sailboats.

 Have you hugged a tree today?
