Poem by Sailor Jan Robey

Sailing into Freedom
For the greater part of life
I lived in a world of limits & boundaries.
Being confined within a challenged body,
I could but wonder what freedom felt like.
From the very first solo-sailing,
I became the allness of freedom.
With the freedom of motion across the water,
I quickly sailed into the freedom of my heart.
There I became the lyrics of an unsung song,
and the motion of a dance
that was waiting to happen.
Sailing introduced me to
‘freedom, within & without’!
When I am sailing
I am one with the water & Earth,
and I am still invited to be myself!
