Lesson From San Fran Fog!

August 11, 2011

I found myself in San Francisco Bay a week and a half ago amongst a heavy fog.  It was surprisingly chilly given that it is summer time in the state of California!  Little did I know that this is a regular occurrence in the morning and evenings.


I was walking outside the Ferry Market Building towards the end of one of the piers, and took a seat to enjoy the view of the open ocean and Bay Bridge.  At around 11am, not a word of a lie, the fog evaporated in minutes, the temperature jumped to what felt like 20 degrees higher, revealing the most stunning of views to the onlooker.


This put me into a reflective state, and from this experience came a life lesson:

When it seems everything is fogged in, murky, and confusing, be patient, and hold your  ground.  Most people quit before the skies clear, thus constantly falling short of life’s  greatest rewards.

The parting of the skies inspired me to record my version of my Dad’s song “Sea Shanty,” as  it just seemed like the right time to do it.  Enjoy:

    I asked Garth to bring his laptop over so Dad could see your video–he liked it a lot.
    We love you a lot,
