Can't help but watch this thread and feel some of the anger, frustration and even disgust you are feeling. Can't come and join you but I want to send my sincere wishes that you have a good time paddling and telling paddling stories, tall or otherwise, as you get together. The rendezvous is a time to celebrate with others who similarly appreciate paddling on the beautiful waters we have been blessed with.
I like this quote and maybe some of you might find something in it for yourselves.
“"maggie and millie and molly and may"
maggie and millie and molly and may
went down to the beach (to play one day)
and maggie discovered a shell that sang
so sweetly she couldn't remember her troubles,and
millie befriended a stranded star
who's rays five languid fingers were;
and molly was chased by a horrible thing
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and
may came home with a smooth round stone
as small as a world and as large as alone.
For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea.”
E. E. Cummings quotes (American poet 1894-1962
