We are getting to that point in the trip where tired is setting in. The science team has worked incredibly hard. The physical and mental endurance required, to keep it all going, has me thinking Energizer can ditch the pink bunny and use the NAAMES crew instead.
I sat on the deck today thinking about home. Wishing that the roll of the ship would stop for a moment--just a moment. My body feeling heavy from the constant struggle to maintain my equilibrium. Then gratitude set in. I KNOW I will miss this. When I am sitting in Atlanta traffic, where nothing rolls, I will think about these waves. I will remember this day. A moment, when this rainbow painted the sky with its brilliant colors. I was outside, alone, in the North-Atlantic and it occurred to me I might be the only person in the world to set my gaze upon it. What a magical reminder of how special this moment is. What a gift!
