The cold winter chill has descended upon the Puget Sound area...28 F this morning, as I walked to the client office.  It will be in the low 70s F in the marina this week, far to the South.

The near-term is cloudy - and I wait for the figurative 'roll of the dice' on a certain matter. I am at peace with delays - or outcomes. For I am a Sailor - and I know well the craft of patience. Long days spent tacking back and forth to gain a few miles...days spent driving hard into waves to make a few miles....and the indeterminable pauses when the wind dies and you are becalmed.
