【久しぶりの訪問客】

昨晩、海鳥が船の後ろのソーラーパネルに遊びに来てくれましが、今朝、飛び立って行きました。久しぶりの訪問客です。「海鳥遊びに来てくれてありがとう。頑張るからね」と飛び立つ海鳥にお礼を言った。


沿岸を航行中にはイルカやウミガメが寄ってきてくれたのですが、西に進路を取った後には訪問客がありませんでした。とても嬉しく、生き物との出会いがこんなに素晴らしいものかと感じた。


私の伯父が天国から来てくれたような気にもなった。私に自殺を思いとどまらせてくれ、ポジティブに生きろとのメッセージを送ってくれた人でもある。詳しくは私の著書「見えないからこそ見えた光 絶望を希望に変える生き方」をぜひ読んでいただけましたら幸いです。

この海鳥が運んできてくれたかのように、穏やかな貿易風帯に恵まれ気持ちの良いセーリングを続けています。

[ A guest for the fist time in long time ]

We had a guest last night. A sea bird visited us on the back of the boat where the solar panels are. It stayed the night but left this morning. I said to him as he left, ” Thanks for stopping by! We will make it!”

We spotted some creatures close to our boat when we were still near the coast of America, like dolphins and sea turtles. But since we sailed to the west, we have had no guests. So, we enjoyed the sea bird’s company and felt a joy to have an interaction with another creature.

I felt like my uncle in heaven, came to see me. He is the one who sent me a message to have a positive life, when I was about to commit suicide. You can find this part of my story in my recently published book. (available only in Japanese)

We are having a great sailing in the fair winds of trade. Maybe that bird brought this weather for us.

  2. Hiro and Doug, As you near the mid-point of the Voyage of Inspiration, what is the one thing from your pre-voyage packing list (besides a spare sponge) that you most wish you had included? What do you wish you had onboard?
