Sailing on Green Bay

Sailboat on Green Gay

“There is a rule in sailing where the more maneuverable ship should give way to the less maneuverable craft. I think this is sometimes a good rule to follow in human relationships as well.” Joyce Brothers

One of my viewers, Rosa Say, who has a remarkable site at Aloha Coaching left me an interesting comment. “There is a Hawaiian belief that the sky above us is filled with multiple layers of life: The word we use is papahulilani, and (it means) we don’t always see what is there, but we shouldn’t question that it is.” Thank you, Rosa, for this added insight.

    I guess this ship ate the other one then, since the other one isn’t there anymore.

    Chris – are you telling me my quote doesn’t quite fit? Hmmm. Maybe not, but I love the quote so I guess it has to stay. I don’t take many sailing photos. 🙂

    The contrast between sailboat and background is perfect, Bo. It looks like you showed up at a great moment. Beautiful tones & setup.

    Absolutely beautiful… colors, composition, and view. 🙂

    I like the quote too, and I like the picture that goes with it. I was just in a weird mood this morning.

    I should probably remember to go see other people’s blogs after breakfast next time.

    This could be a shot right out of the visitor’s guide or whatever pub they have there. Perhaps you can sell it to them.

    This is simply a delicious picture. Very serene and sensual.

    Ha! What a gem! (your photo is awesome, too, Bo!)

    What I like about this quote is that it really underscores the idea that 50/50 relationships never work well as people just keep bumping heads in the middle 😉

    Gorgeous photo, Bo! Your timing was perfect!

    Bo, this is exquisite: I am dreaming of catching birds in flight (with the lens of my camera), and the way that this one is framed with all these other luscious elements in this photo is truly outstanding to me. Wow.

    There is a Hawaiian belief that the sky above us is filled with multiple layers of life: The word we use is papahulilani, and we don’t always see what is there, but we shouldn’t question that it is. That is the feeling that this sky evokes for me.

    Canoe paddlers can tell us which reflections in your ocean come from the sky, and which come from the currents beneath the surface. Great kaona (hidden meaning) in this photo.
