Thoughts from a Stormy Night at Sea

I was at the helm a few nights ago.  It was two in the morning and it was my first working night on the boat.  Rain beat down on us from the southeast while lightning lit up the otherwise pitch-black night sky.   The boat was
rocking hard as we made our way across the sea and falling overboard become a very real reality.

It was silent, except for the winds, as more than thirty people slept below the deck. And yet, I was at peace.  There I was, staring out into the ocean steering a massive ship in those comparatively intense conditions in the middle of the night and reflected on who and where I am.
