oh. em. gee.


Nothing frustrates me more, apparently then when a coworker fronts a knowledge and experience (ie "I'm the captain, and I've captained many ships in real life") when he wouldn't know a port tack from a starboard, much less captain a boat (he's um, color-blind, for one).

And then says this on television, not just in front of children and myself.

On the other hand, a recent evaluation from a parent included the line: "her sailing knowledge was not believable." This coming from the same group I explained lateral resistance, a little sail theory, and the importance of a deep keel to. HAHA. I love adults.

I know what you mean...
Elan,

There is just so much injustice in the world. If you let it get to you, you will lose all perspective. Just know what you know and believe in yourself. It is not dependent on what others see, (color blindness and stupidity, etc.) or what others can understand. If that person could not believe your depth of knowledge, it is probably because they could not fathom what you were trying to teach them. Some people choose to remain in their ignorance in order to accept who they are and what they themselves know. The world is not fair. If it was, things would be so much different and I probably would not be on the computer. I love you so much. I wish we were planning my birthday trip to Key West to see you again. I may come out to CA to visit with you. Love, Mom
