Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board…

Today, I will be brief. This weekend will be a glorious one, invested at a Father/Son camp with my middle boy, Dylan, who is almost 15. So my post today will be brief, borrowed and, I hope you will agree, a powerful end note to my emphasis this week on the power of dreams, goals and goal achievement.

Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men.

Now, women forget all those things they don’t want to remember, and remember everything they don’t want to forget. The dream is the truth. Then they act and do things accordingly.


This is from the opening paragraph of the classic novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston.

My wish for my children – and for you – is that your wishes will come in with the tide or you will find a way to board the ship on which they sail. Men and women – all – may the right dreams become your truth!

If you wonder if I can help you, just ask and we’ll explore your dreams together.

Remember, your dreams do not have to sail past you, forever on the horizon.
