Passing The Time

….I think about the times I’ve spent, right here, in Annapolis

When I sit on the dock and look out over the ripples of my life, I think about the times I’ve spent, right here, in Annapolis. In a flashback, of ten years old or so, I sailed the Chesapeake in twenty knot winds. The sailing association was just getting on their feet. The fish market smelled as the skipjacks came in from a day at sea. Folks would prowl, checking the poles for blue claws. Those days have turned into tourism and a vacation spot; popular to most, on the east coast.

Remnants of the legacy still exist. Much of the 1600’s still stands quietly, mingled in the reggae music and contemporary architecture. A somber solitude emerges, as the evening breezes catch a cluster of little sailors, meandering out to race on the open waters. I watch as the world repeats itself and new generations come to catch a glimpse of what life used to be. I chuckle to myself, as they have no idea what life was like in the fifties and sixties.


Those days are long gone… patrons pass the time sitting in the shade watching for captains to come home from sea. It’s a busy little place, as tourists proudly display their trinkets they’ve discovered here. Drinks seem to comfort the weary feet after a hard day of meandering on Main St. – it’s happy hour! The moon peaks over the Bay Bridge, and, I sit and try to paint this spectacular event as the sun sets behind me. God – what a beautiful day! What wonderful company!

What you are reading on my website is the result of a miracle from God. I am not a writer, though I am a messenger. God took a very dyslexic guy from Severna Park, Maryland, who never read or wrote a thing, and told me I was going to write messages to share with others. I do not have a degree, and English was my poorest subject. Trust me, it's only through God that I write. As you read, understand that we all have the ability to receive the gifts that Christ would like us to have, gifts from God. It happened to me, it can happen to you. Let God enter your soul and rule your spirit!
