Ships At A Distance

Image result for ship at a distance

‘Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board’ wrote Zora Neale Hurston. I might add that we wish for many things, some of which make no sense and for things we wouldn’t know what to do with if we got them. Most of these ships never find harbor. They just travel across the sea in a voyage of which there is no end. Unreliable captains very seldom find the intended port, they just keep wishing they do. We’re always wishing; on stars, on pennies thrown in a fountain, and other things. If we are not careful, we can spend our whole life wishing; an endless journey to nowhere.
