Paradise In A Mudhole

"This is simply a place of love" author Doris Gwaltney  (from a conversation years ago).

"This is my favorite land." Liam Stevenson at about age three. (from a conversation with his mother).

I have traveled to over 30 countries in my time..I have SCUBA dived within sight of Mt.Sinai, Skied Mt Aetna, Rode bulls in Palermo, I have seen the night life of cultural centers like Barcelona, and Dubai, walked among the ruins of ancient Greece and Rome, I have seen the Pyramids at Giza, (better on TV..really) stood astride the Pillars of Heracles, and mourned the loss of the Great Library, and sailed every significant body of water in the world, with the exception of the South Seas, I have crawled out onto the statue of The Little Mermaid in Kobenhvn harbor for a picture..

There is no place on this planet I would rather be than walking among this little herd of horses and kids.

Even when the wild goose calls, as it always does, particularly for old sailors..This is home. -Lloyd
