I've been feeling scattered about my art. Making things to sell at the markets I've committed to just didn't have meaning for me. Usually one watercolor sketch is enough to pull me out of a down period and get me focused again. Not so this time.

I believe I can
* raise money to contribute to organizations working with current refugees
*gain skills to work with future refugees coming here, to Seattle, perhaps by volunteering with an organization such as the International Rescue Committee
*work toward building a stronger community here with resources and mindset to help people coming from war-torn and violence torn countries.
So, what does all this have to do with sailing?
Sailing gives me the energy to move forward. It renews my soul.
