A salty life ... is Always a good life

We are soaking up every bit of hot salty summer air and time on, under and in the ocean.  I feel so fortunate to be basking in summer after this winter that reminded us of all that New England can dish up!  It is wild to think that Cape Cod bay had ice bergs only months ago.  For all that I have have perpetual wanderlust, home right now is a pretty surreal and wild place itself, when you put all the seasons, nature and beauty together!

"And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have, in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch it, we are going back from whence we came. "
— President John F. Kennedy

"Promise me you will not spend so much time treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves that you forget, truly forget, how much you have always loved to swim."
- Tyler Knott Gregson, a wise poet from Montana

"I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by;
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied..."
John Masefield, Sea Fever

The Questions we Ask!" Bruce Kirkby

I love LOVE this in all its simple explosive accessible wisdom, and his perfect kicker!

"It is the questions we ask...shape our path"

"What is adventure... I'm not so sure we know these days.
Movie and magazines all scream extreme, goretex suits and vertical routes. 
Foreign trips and big cliff hits. 
But that's not the heart of it.
Adventure is curiosity.
The willingness to embrace uncertainty, wondering about the possibility of doing just one thing differently than before."

A Classic Must See TED Talk

I was chatting with someone about body posture today and Amy Cuddy's amazing TED talk came up again, it seems to always come up!  If you have not seen this it is a must, it encapsulates so much that is essential in our time; about TED, about science, research, education and the power of belief in changing and improving yourself, and about the importance of sharing what it is you find with others.
