Pretty good Evie.  I don't quiet agree with the comment "went off to college to major in beer and girls," if one was drunk one does not fight well. and disciplined in the martial arts is everything.

True. I didn't mean necessarily literally "majoring in beer and girls," though, but just spelling out the stereotype of the late bloomer sort that Wash comes across as to me.  The sort of guy who seems to just cruise through his adolescent/young adult years in a carefree, non-serious (and sometimes not at all serious enough) sort of way, but eventually reaching his true potential when he reaches a certain level of maturity a few years down the road.

Thank you Revanne and DR. I love both tales of the sea. thank you for sharing.

I grew up on boats and sung many a Sea Shanty in my days. My Father wrote a poem that I would love to share with you.
I will quote it from his published book "Tales from a Small Tall Ship" by Bill McNaughton


Following Seas

Running along in following seas
Rushing downwind in a violent breeze
These are the things that make me so pleased
To be at sea again.

Carefully steering off the curling wave
Sliding down into a cavernous cave
It's days like today that make me crave
To be free again.

The bow must be buoyant to rise from the foam
For with the wind at our back we know we can roam
Though the waves may be high they come from our home
And we're outward bound again.

There is a difference you see when you're sailing free
For with the wind at your back you don't have to tack
And though the waves may be high they have a benevolent cry
And your out where you want to be again.

The boat is a pussycat as it sails along
The wave make a hiss and the wind sings a song
The bow sprays like whiskers spread to the side
And I shout it out loud "What a Hell of a Ride!"

I know if I turn towards the wind she's a tiger
and I really don't want to be riding astride her
For downwind is nice and the seas are more friendly
To beat hard to weather is not what excites me.

The rigging is taut and the sails do not shake
and we're moving along at a dizzying rate
I'll sing you a shanty, I'll humm you a tune
For wherever we're going we're getting there soon.

Square up the yards and ease off the sheets
It's not very often you are allowed such a treat
To run with the wind in following seas
And to be offered such a glorious gift again.

Wonderful, Laurna. Thank you so much for sharing.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Thanks for the songs and poems of the sea. They were great. Having lived by the Chesapeake Bay for over 50 years, I could really relate to them. And I love sea shanties. Once many years ago had the chance to take my kids to a sea festival where Jacque Cousteau told them tales of the sea and have never forgotten it.

Wash has said he wants to go to the schools to learn to better use his powers, especially the healing power. Hope he lives to do that.

Lovely poem, Laurna!  Obviously writing ability runs in your family. :D
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Darcy nods in agreement with all of the wonderful poems that strike a familiar chord in his soul.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggity beasties and things that go bump in the night...good Lord deliver us!

Poor Aliset, not safe even in Rhemuth in the castle garden.

 Oh no!!

    let those who hate him flee before him.

So sad when the book dropped through her fingers.

Come on Wash, this is the hour to truly win your spurs.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

Oh no! A new twist! Washburn is watching from the window, he sees what is going on and does not like it. Not in the least!
Trouble is I am off to work. Wash will respond after my work is done. Poor Aliset, hold on!

Glad Wash was watching - the pause gives me time to introduce Columcil to a new trauma.

egads!

It seems that someone else has agents in Kelson's court. Maybe someone working for Oswald so he can get his bride to be ....

Oh dear so many complications  all at once. Hope our friends can sort it out with the help of  the others at court, Seems like Kelson needs to do a sweep of his castle and court. Does Feyd have competition?

Lovely Revanne. Poor Columcil, it seems he has a difficult  road to follow I hope all works out for him.
