I have a framed picture of a lighthouse and underneath it says: "Cares are left at the water's edge." When I saw that quote, I had to buy the picture. Those few words say it all.

Joy H. (JoyofGlensFalls) | 12973 comments About telephone calls, yes, sometimes they are an intrusion. I'm usually more comfortable with e-mail. E-mail allows me time to think about the message and then I can deal with it when time allows. I hate being interrupted by a telephone... unless it's someone I enjoy hearing from. I will pick up the phone to call someone only if it's absolutely necessary.

I just now finished,"Called Out of Darkness," and found it fascintating. It might appeal more to someone who had attended Catholic schools, Yet I only attended them for less than half my education and I don't remember some of the things she referred or else I was never told some of those things. Yet, it was extremely well written;loved the New Orleans setting. And it was interesting how she managed to go back to her faith. She did this with the blessing of her husband and they were married in the church..I didn't feel his death had anything to do with her leaving atheism. Although, she was a difficult person to understand I felt her life provided pondering God's existance. I would suggest it to readers interested in Character and of course, People of any faith..nina

Nina, thanks for the recommendation to Anne Rice's _Called Out of Darkness A Spiritual Confession_. It's always interesting to ponder the existence of God.

Some..."That is a good quote. You do leave your "land" worries at home but I remember lots of "cares" about getting back to it when we had stormy weather...nina

LOL - How ironical!

As for the dangers of bad weather while boating, I know what you mean. These days I try to go boating only in good weather. Our "adventure-days" on wild waters are over... I hope! LOL
