The Adventure Begins

Okay, we've got a plan, and I can't wait to tell you! We've been trying to decide which of several enticing paths (see Robert Frost's poem below) we want to take next in our lives. Even though I've only started my business 4 years ago, and John his new career last year, we've been looking ahead to what's next. Travel, the ocean, and exploration have been calling. Of course, it would all be so easy if we won the lottery ... but suddenly, mutually, we just seemed to come to full realization that life IS what WE make it, and we can make it, make it happen. It might not be easy, might be financially risky, might have to let go of earthly possessions like a house or sports car, but living dreams are also about choices. So, we have set our feet firmly on the path that is grassy and wanting wear: we are going to take a hiatus from our office and sail. I mean, take off for a year or two, live on the boat and go as far as time and money will take us.
This is my first public declaration. There is a lot of plan making ahead, and I can't wait to share.
