One of the most beautiful few moments I've ever spent was on a boat. The wind came strong and steady out of the south, about fifteen knots. It was nighttime, and my brother, and our neighbor decided it was time for a sail.


We traded off tiller. Our woman companion on this lark was determined to show her mettle. I remember her quite distinctly brushing the hair back from her eyes, a look of strength on her face. "I'm as good as these boys when in comes to this. I know how to sail a boat!" And she did!

It was a glorious night sailing.

Her face, hair brushed aside, was beautiful.

That people have lost vocabulary isn't my fault.
