Tonight, I am packing for the unknown.
I mentioned earlier that I was following up a lead for a job as a crew member on a sailboat.
I am leaving tomorrow for Fiji (which is kind of interesting, because back in the ‘States, it seems to be pronounced pretty universally as “FEE-jee” and here in New Zealand it sounds more like “fi-JEE”.) where I will be meeting up with the Delamer.
She’s a 44 ft. Ketch, and I have no idea what I’m doing, and I’m sort of terrified, and I am so, so, *unspeakably* happy.
I’m packing for Fiji, and I’m packing for the ocean, and I’m packing for being on 40 feet of wood and steel for a fortnight.
So. It’s a bit of a cliff, but I’ve already jumped off.
Equal parts terror and elation.
I can’t wait.
