“Venice is like eating an entire box of chocolate liqueurs in one go.” – Truman Capote

Don’t throw away your old shoes before you have new shoes.
– Flemish saying
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by things you didn’t do than by things that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
This quote is attributed to Mark Twain. And Mark is also the name of the tillerman in the picture above. He is a good friend of mine and I’m sure that he really appreciates the strong exhortation of this quote.
