It was a very special reception with lots of friends and sailors, lively discussion and delicious snacks.
The cake was homemade and decorated with a sailboat showing the ID numbers of Rod’s boat “Sail La Vie”.

    Happy Birthday Rod. Here is a poem for you!
    Me and my boat
    Just me and my boat.
    I sail away from it all
    The shore, the people,
    My work, my responsibilies,
    The stress, the worries.
    Just me and my boat.
    I am all alone.
    As I sail I notice what is around me
    The wide waters and the constant movement of the waves,
    Birds that fly overhead and swoop down,
    Fish and plants that play in the water,
    Islands and rocks and trees and life.
    Creation is all around me!
    A feeling overwhelms me,
    A warmth, a sense of shelter.
    I did not sail away,
    But into something
    Deep into creation,
    Into the sacredness of life,
    Into Gods love.
    And I remember again
    That I am not alone.
    Happy Day! From JustUs!
