This is the story of a cargo boat captain and his journey.
From the moment he leaves home,
both excited & full of reservations,
on a sometimes lonely path,
getting stranded within view of his destination port,
fighting temptations of the sea,
struggling with being out of touch with his partner on land,
& ultimately deciding whatever it was he was deciding,
only to learn that the decision may no longer be his to make.
We can all learn from the Captain as we navigate our oceans & spend time away from dry land.
May the seas be calm, your journey short & the winds quickly carry you home.
Recorded to 2 inch tape at Tiny Telephone Oakland, with the help of my talented dear friends... I can't wait for you to hear this.
