Safe Harbor

Ship in storm

A ship in the harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are for.

A man who only paddles around the harbor in his ship would not declare himself a sailer. When sailors set sail they know there is danger. They do it anyway. At sea, when a sailor’s ship takes on water he does not abandon it until and unless he sees that all hope is lost.

It is inevitable that there will be damage. The test is to see whether he can reach the next safe harbor. And when he does…he feels compelled to sail again. Because that’s what ships are for.
