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.   

Lainie and her Dragonflies

Lainie and her Dragonflies

When wind dies, bugs fly. As dusk darkens, skin bites and itches. True almost anywhere water stagnates. But one flying insect occasionally arrives to fend off these bothersome buggers. Its appearance often turns the tide and comes to the rescue.  On a number of occasions on my boat these attackers have suddenly disappeared. Dragonflies devour no-seeums, gnats and mosquitoes; maybe they scare them away. They are, after all, imposing giants. Dragonflies are powerful and precious insects.  All I know is when dragonflies appear the itching ends. And for some reason when Lainie comes on Mystique, they appear more often.
