To anyone with Jambo Blues.... - 11-08-2011
This adventure haas been great! Although I know that some of the participants
and a few others have Jambo Blues. So I wrote this on the trip to Finland
thinking it might make anyone feel a bit better.
Life is like a boat on water
In life, there will always be up and downs. Most of my downs come from memories.
I looked out across the water at the back of the boat going to Finland, and realised that the boat represents life. Always moving foreward into the unknown. Into the mist. The water sprayed out the back is the remains of life. And the ripples are memories.
We were moving away from an island that was surrounded by others when I realised, I won't forget the Jamboree. I never will.
However some ripples die out and are forgotten, but the rest, even if they are small, remain. You never lose memories. As the island faded away in the mist, a seagull flew over the back of the boat. As if he was looking back over his memories. That bird became a metaphor for me and can be for all of us. I can look back over my memories too. Even if I am always moving foreward, always getting older, I know that I can still remember.
Thank you to everyone and for all their support once again,
