About

What started out as chicken scratch notes on the back pages of my boat’s logbook has now grown into this blog. These words and images help me come to terms with a series of events last year centered around living with a loved one struggling with mental illness.

Thanks for reading along as I learn about life the hard way, do the best I can for my son in my new role as a single dad, and find weird similarities between restoring an old blue water sailboat and putting the pieces of my own life back together. Welcome!
