art Coming About reflects on the small sailboats that fill the waters around Ireland. The treachery has been discovered first-hand by many great sailing men over the centuries. The sea is so alluring and seductive, it is no wonder that somany have lost their way. I have a great respect for the sea. My father built sailboats, raced them and became Commodoreof a local yacht club. My sons love to sail in the San Francisco bay. I watch from the shore and admire the scenery.

Coming About

Afloat in uncharted seas
Days are filled with toil and ease
You can do almost as you please
Provided you get a favorable breeze

The horizon hides places unknown
Unhidden as sails are blown
Some islands provide jam and scone
Whereas others are barren stone
