Day and night, day and night, wind and sea, sun and clouds. A living universe, a beating heart in an almost endless sea.
We found a secret time loop, where you’re woken up with songs, and bananas grow in the rigging. In our world there is no war, and we grow young together. Our companions for the journey are playful dolphins and oh so stupid flying fish. They fly into the galley or crash into the sails and they are the bringers of laughter.
It’s been 12 days since our last port of call, La Palma, the island of volcanic madness. I took a bit of fire from there with me, and 500 avocados.
Half way west through the Atlantic Ocean, our days are filled with fixing up our ship, de-rusting and painting, wood work and other projects and lots of joy.
I’ve brewed a recipe for healthy happy life:
-don’t sleep too much
-dance every day
-let the wind blow on your bare skin
-laugh until your face hurts
See you on the other side

The moon goes to sleep, the other watch also. We’re alone on deck with a very light breeze. We’re like an evolution […]
Paint and stain possible on this beautiful day. All sails are up, even the jib that the kids painted in Amsterdam. We sat her under the mainsail. We call it the ‚dolphin sail‘. Some of the crew members enjoyed cooking yesterday while Soraia had a day off. Her pastas, oignons beignets, pizzas, lasagna and vegetables […]
Fingers grab the outer jib sheet … Are they mine? Hands feel the curiosity Of last year’s boson The mumbling drums of this refit And that refit Echoes of detachment sweat That rinsed all those backs Shaped all those minds Into a pale blue line Man, just had this crazy dream Was it mine? Boots […]
