Patient sailor always have good wind

One week at sea for Tres Hombres,
Since we left Douarnenez, bounding for Canaries’ islands, we have south winds
This happen when a low pressure cross the Atlantic, during few days
I turn around my fellow Ocean since ten years now
Quite use to deal with him, with his mood

This week he is bad mood.
A large low pressure is turning anti clockwise around the all North Atlantic !!!???!!!
In place of the Azores high pressure, the famous Trade Wind ( “Alizée” in french, which is female genre)
The one who “Christoffel Columbus” used 500 years ago
The Vikings used the north part of this thermal system to discover the great lakes and Hudson river long time before.
This system, described by “Corriolis” or “Buys Balot” is running since 800 000 years
Bringing good warmth in Europe by the Gulf Stream
Building a temperate climate around Mediterranean sea
The perfect one to grow vegetables,fruits, cereals
To feed little monkeys and change them into biped who know that they know (sapiens sapiens in Greek)
Aware of the beauty of the Nature, aware of the miracle of the Life

For the next week the wind will turn other way around ¡¡¡¿¿¿¡¡¡ (I have a Spanish keyboard to do that 🙂
I’m confused, what to think, what to do?

It’s seems to me that our civilisation is also running wrong way around since the industrial revolution
I’m not feeling happy, but I’m not feeling blind.
The bad use of technologies make us slave of an economical growth, which has no sense, no goal

Two years ago, I meet Three Mans, with an Ideal
They change my mind, gave a Sense to my Life
I learn on The Brigantine “Tres Hombres” a very old happiness recipe

-watch your words
-never take anything personally
-never do expectations
-always give the best of yourself

Let do what need to be done
I’ll go ahead
The wind shift, we have to tack
