Set Sail…..


There will come a day when I will go unseen and unknown. No forwarding address, no email or phone number.  It is the fate of all that have come before me and the waiting legacy of all who come after me. Few have the chance to choose the when, where or how. And no one can predict who will be there to hold our hand or if we will even get that final goodbye. If you have lived your life honestly and shared your love with all those that mattered along the way then when, where and with whom won’t matter. There will be no words left unspoken and no amends left unmade.

Life is meant to be lived. Live it to the fullest.

Life is meant to be loved. Find your passion.

Life is meant to be shared. Keep the doors to your heart open.

Life is simple – people are complicated, love makes it all worth while.

When my days on earth are through set my ashes adrift on the waves between the islands of Molokai and Maui.

Take the sailboat out of Lahaina Harbor and let the hum of the engine take you to the edge of the land mass. Cut the engine and have faith. The trade winds will whip around the end of the island and fill your sails. The boat will pitch to the side and you will find yourself moving with a purpose, sailing across the most incredible blue water you have ever seen with a grace you have never experienced before.

This is where I will be. There, with spinner dolphins and hump back whales, filled sails and a setting sun. This is life…this is love… THIS is where you will find me.

I love each and every one of you

    1. Don’t worry Bon – You’ll win the lotto LONG before you’ll need the plane ticket.
      I’m not going anywhere anytime soon.
      But for all those that have lost someone this year or are in the process of saying goodbye, it is not the beginning or end of life that is important…it’s all that living that happens in the middle.
      My dear friend LAW and her family – who just lost their dad 8 weeks ago, made the hard decision to send their mother to Hospice today after she suffered a massive stroke. It was unexpected and left a few with the feeling of ‘unfinished” business. If you say what needs to be said when it needs to be said – then you’ll always know “it’s all good”.


      1. Oh my…….Heavy heart for Law and her family. May God be with them all.
