Lord of Water I – A Precious Water Planet

Chapter 4 – The Draw Boats

 I hadn’t really paid much attention to the industry of the ocean and had only read about it and covered the subject in study. This life has been a bit of a rest for me so far.

Drawings from text really don’t, or can’t, illustrate the power and magnetism of the ocean. As the draw boats all swayed and arched together I could suddenly see the life of these long spirited galleons. All poised together in the quiet movement of the bay.

Gary guided us through his draw boat that was soon to become our champion and defender as we strike our journey into an adventure that poses possibly more than this well equipped and seasoned spirit-of-the-sea can face up to.

“Her name is Hi-Sun. She will care for you with great affection to calm your soul as she slides herself across the oceans. She will fight to the end to match the spirit of any storm our Mother Ocean may place across our path. We will go to the markets to complete our stocks, for our journey begins just before the evening falls. Set in our Lady Sun is the path we follow and we’ll chase her into the starry skies.”

Mila was smiling and so was I. Hi-Sun felt magnificent, warm and trusting with a feeling of strength and confidence or loyalty or just some touching wavelength I’m unable to find a word for. She isn’t the biggest or most modern of the many others lined up and ready, but she radiated some type of wisdom that has already made her our own.

“So we have a poetic fisherman,” Mila giggled with a whisper, 

“I am sure that the mildest of days will become the dramatic ocean tales and a timeless legend for many generations to come.”

She was still smiling. Me as well. We followed Gary’s two trusty deck hands into the markets and assisted with the stock along with a few choices of our own. Our two cheeky deck hands, Max and Pei, would disappear at the slightest turn of a head and then be there at our sides with other mystical and strange supplies piling up on our trolley.

“Everyone here looks like they are about to burst out laughing,” said Mila, “I feel it too and I know I can just suddenly burst out laughing even though I don’t have to and nobody else actually is. It feels amazing.” 

I just smiled and I didn’t need to say a word for Mila to fully know what I meant. The only way I can explain the tone of this place is total cheekiness. This is a timeless, strong community and with the architecture and feel of the town scape, has been here for many, many millennia past.

I knew with certainty that I had chosen well. Gary, his Hi-Sun and our two cheeky deck hands. It wasn’t clear to me why I needed this tool, but one thing was certain; the direction to go was out and beyond the setting sun. I now had the partnership that could take me one step closer to my life purpose and task at hand.

Our youthful and still innocent Lord of Water was right in his observation. The people of the bay were exceptional. Their community and value was that of millenniums beforehand with an in-ground culture and a balanced moral code. In fact, this is all that he had observed. A peaceful water planet with family, community, industry and a sense of value for the spirit of man. The lands of the planet are all in abundance with international trade, respect and competition, truly in the spirit of play. Nothing more than a few local young bucks testing each other’s strength on a Friday night after a few ales being the heaviest concern of the law. In such an oasis, what else could there be need for? And was it really necessary for our Lord of Water to check it over to protect this precious resource? These “should” be peaceful times and a future with no “threat” in sight. Will this journey be a simple task? This certainly is what our Lord of Water is hoping for.
