SHIP OF LIFE!

ARE YOU READY TO BECOME RESOLVED?

Every year we wait for January 1. To make our New Year’s resolution and to dedicate ourselves to making some great change in our lives. I wrote a book about this, and an epic poem. Their purpose is to inspire you to such change. Here is some of it for you…

SHIP OF LIFE!

Make this the passion of a lifetime
as if today is the beginning
and there is no yesterday:
Set out upon the ship of life
disciplined in mind and spirit,
fearless of peril and danger,
dauntless with faith and conviction,
certain of justice and in judgment,
relentless in duty and with honesty,
prepared for enterprise and challenge,
humble and merciful in victory,
and glorious and dignified in defeat!
Embrace each day with pride and gratitude
and honor yourself with happiness and joy.
Be different, be special, be a philosopher!
Set a goal, take a chance, strive for freedom!
And dare to try.

For this is the passion of a lifetime
as if tomorrow is today
and there is no turning back:
Set out upon the ship of life
loyal to wisdom and to truth,
true to love and to friendship,
brave before suffering and despair,
adamant against evil and corruption,
triumphant over anger and hate,
stronger than motive and emotion,
and meek and gentle with compassion!
Embrace each day with reverence and wonder
and reward yourself with laughter and beauty.
Be unique, be visionary, be a dreamer!
Set an example, strike a blow, strive for peace!
And dare to live.

COME VISIT BISCAYNE NATIONAL PARK WITH THE 59 VETERANS PROJECT!

BISCAYNE1

SHARE THIS AMAZING NATIONAL PARK!

The 59 Veterans Project can’t wait to be taking military veterans into the field to teach them careers in 4K and VR videography and photography. The field of travel and classroom we intend consists of our 59 national parks!
One of these we really can’t wait to visit is Biscayne National Park in southern Florida. Officially established in June of 1980, Biscayne National Park is a watery paradise covering 172,971 acres and extending throughout the Florida Keys. Seen in the park are sixteen endangered species that include swallowtail butterflies, smalltooth sawfish, manatees, the peregrine falcon and green and hawksbill sea turtles. Biscayne also has a small population of threatened American crocodiles and several American alligators.
Located majorly in Biscayne Bay, at the north end of the Florida Keys, the park has four significant interrelated marine ecosystems. They are the mangrove forest, the Bay, the Keys, and the coral reefs. Outdoor activities in and around the park include snorkeling, surfing, hang gliding, boating/sailing, windsurfing, underwater photography, and so much else.
To learn more about this beautiful and amazing watery paradise, go here: https://www.nps.gov/bisc/index.htm. To learn more about our project to help veterans, please visit our headquarters company at http://59veterans.com/. We hope you join us and we may ascend this unparalleled summit together!

American HSR Languishes While Italy Keeps Cho-Choing Ahead!

ITALO EVO

SHARE WITH HIGH SPEED RAIL LOVERS!

More good news in from Italy: “High speed open access operator Nuovo Transporto Viaggiatori announced on November 29 that the first four of its fleet of 17 Italo Evo trainsets will officially enter service on December 7, just before the start of the winter timetable three days later. The announcement was made at a presentation of an Evo trainset in Roma, when guests rode the train between Termini and Tiburtina stations.”

While America still languishes in ancient, non-HSR train technology and a mass transit system buried under traffic jams and car exhaust, at least in Italy and Europe we get to see train technology and mass transit continue to progress and improve. Almost at the speed of a HSR train!

Contrition

1CONTRITION

In the realm of platonic relationships, there are friends…and there are soulmate friends. It has its own kind of love. And friendship and forgiveness and contrition. All essential to those who know to remain loyal to soulmate friends.

CONTRITION

Ah, do you ever miss me like I have missed you,
The company we kept and the joys we have known?
For friends can surely hurt you and break your heart, too.
And leave you feeling lonely when you’re not alone.

It’s strange how days can go by and we would forget
The brief harshness of words that were ever spoken.
And yet, instead of vanquishing shame and regret,
Our lonely, prideful hearts would rather stay broken.

Yet sometimes friendship is the only love you’ll know,
Despite the differences we suffered to share.
Only a selfish heart could pretend to let go
Who could forgivingly show how much they still care.

Still, though days were to become years and even end
The friendship that love once had the courage to tell;
Perhaps for some it is easy to lose a friend;
(Only one who has loved could remember so well).
