My favorite childhood poem was “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod’ by Eugene Field. Little did I know at the time that I would be drawn to the sea throughout my life.
Wynken, Blynken, and Nod one night
Sailed off in a wooden shoe —
Sailed on a river of crystal light,
Into a sea of dew.
I’m a writer in love with the sea, sailing and travel. I don’t let the fact that I currently live in a Dallas suburb keep me from returning to a beach, a shore, a boat or a ship whenever possible.
