my son was saying, last week, how he missed sailing - their (my son and daughter's) mother and grandfather had been very keen sailors: and so, when they were small they, my son and daughter, went for sailing lessons - they hated the coach at the sailing club, he grated on them, and so they didn't enjoy sailing in that context and so quit the lessons, but they enjoyed sailing for the vibe of it, they enjoyed days out with their grandfather on his boat ...

i never went sailing till I was in my 20's, in miami; I'd been boating earlier, fishing from an early age, but not sailing  ... my peoples were farmers and ranchers, people of the horse and the cow ... my own father never learned to swim till he was 40 ... i knew how to drive tractors and milk cows and ride horse from a yute, not to trim sails and tack and jibe!

but we grow old ever learning new things; sailing, because of the people now in it, has become part of my life, occasional sailing that is, as a passenger, as ballast, as a lounger upon the deck, not as crew ... but i do like the vibe of it, man, the calm, the quite the loll and roll (when it's not making me seasick!!) ...

the other day, someone came and asked me if I would do a dready of her son sailing his optimist; he was off to the world championships in italy on lake garda and then off to boarding school and she thought that it would be a nice present for him to take on his new journey - an original dready having a kinda large price tag for a boy turning 11, I said if she'd allow me to use the dready I drew as the basis for a print series I'd do it for just the price of a print ... she said yes ...

and so I did ... two versions ... boy and girl
