|Clue: Involves a daily necessity|
We continue to fiddle, poke and troubleshoot parts on Aletheia that we want to make functional prior to leaving our current mooring in Purcell's Cove, NS.
We had a great dinner party on Saturday evening with our new friends Kirstan and Tobin and other guests at Tobin's house. Oh the lovely cake, strawberry rhubarb and ice cream!! After I told one of Tobin's friend about our new adventure, he toasted me "To Courage". I could see the wheels turning in his head, thinking how we are going to make this work, how we even got to this moment, and what is to come. I could also see the light is his eyes of what a journey it could be!
We have a towel that once hung from our front door that now hangs from our bookshelf. In bright red and gold colors, it tells us to "Take Courage". Nate took possession of this towel in college, after his Grandmother's passing, but never knew its meaning, only that his Grandmother had savored it for most of her life. Who knows how she got it?! Once he found out it was not only a Mantra, but also a bar towel, it became even more valuable, more exciting and ever more hopeful!
When Tobin's friend toasted me "to courage", my mind perked up and brought me back full circle to the bar towel. Life is about having courage, some risk involved, and conjuring up excitement for one's life. It's a small token, a daily mantra that life demands Courage of one's self; to try things that are hard, challenging, scary and/or unfamiliar - that's courage and I think it's acceptable in small doses. Courage isn't about being fearless, it's about overcoming fear. LOVE to everyone!
