Living On Purpose

I have a purpose, a reason for being, a goal and aim in life. It is a purpose that helps guide my every action.

My formal purpose statement is: To Remain Awake, and to Awaken The Remaining.

This statement summarizes how I feel about life.

Too many things in society are hypnotic and we become entranced by it, forgetting that we own our lives and can live it on our terms. Thus, I must remain awake.

There are not only parts of myself that still need to be awakened, but I receive tremendous joy in awakening others, and watching how their "awakenedness" manifests and cascades back through all of life. Thus, I will awaken the remaining ... not only in my self, but in all those I can touch.

This living with a purpose has manifested into the public sharing of SailboatFamily. This site keeps me awake, and allows me to awaken the remaining.

Thank you to everyone whom reads this blog; you allow me to live my purpose.


  1. “We shall not cease from exploration and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started... and know the place for the first time.” T.S. Eliot When I think of this quote I think of two things. The world and who I am within it. We believe that, like you we want to experience life and all the surprises the world holds for us,from somewhere other than behind our car windows and air conditioning.

  2. @Joe: Thank you for your comment. T.S. Eliot is my favorite poet. Another quote of his I enjoy is "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." My life journey is about experience, and when I return anywhere I've been, it is always new.
