Don 馃悵 Kerr, I should like to paddle alongside you someday! I started eying new canoes, as my square back, full contour (Traditional) trappers canoe was destroyed in the fire we had recently. The funny thing, is that this post nails the complexity of the journey. As you say, sometimes, we are smoothly forward stroking across the glass-like surface of the water, other times, we are navigating wind, rapids and our craft has taken on some significant water, yet that paddle, that tool, skillfully applied with pry's, scull's and draws not only keeps us afloat, but moving forward. I don't believe in coincidences, so whole heatedly embracing fate is not my nature. Yet, I am also a person of faith who has come face to face with the reaper, stared stared him down and came out alive. That I cannot attribute to my action, as I was unconscious and broken; so somewhere in there, I believe a higher power determined that it wasn't my time. So yes, I agree, reality is indeed, the space between. Wonderful post and use of the metaphor Don. That is a beautiful paddle by the way, and such a wonderful gift from your wise friend. Thank you so much for the kind words regarding my post as well, it is deeply appreciated.
