Sorry for the late story, I over slept. Too much Chinese food last night. BUT, that Hunan Chicken gave me the gift of joy all night. I was at a boat show. YUP, it’s been so long I literally had a dream that I was at a huge boat show. THE BOAT SHOW. Everyone was there, and all the boat shows we have missed were all there all rolled up into one whopper show. It was so great to see you all.
It was an amazing moment, I didn’t want to wake up. I think. I was asleep so I guess I was just enjoying all of us being together, shaking hands, hugging and laughing. Funny, I don’t recall any of the boats, it was more about you, us, and new us’s. Togetherness in human form.
I woke up after I had the thought, What the hell am I doing at a show during this pandemic. That ruined it. And so I woke up back to our current reality. BUT
One of the true gifts of this years pandemic situation is PROOF that boat shows and events are critical to our culture and humanity. Virtual is fun, but nothing.. NOTHING in the Universe can replace seeing you and shaking your hand and spontaneous laughter. Togetherness is important to all of us no matter our values, or beliefs, being together just mush’s all that away into our collective passion for history, mahogany, decency, and compassion.
So this spring, lets ALL show up to Lake Dora. ALL of us, and welcome the future, the love and kindness that we all share.
