experiences as children in the moment and not as sailors on the bounding main. John told us of a teacher who was pressing him for greater academic results that was echoed by his parents. Joel was hurt by a seemingly innocent nickname, Jojo, that made him feel small, unimportant, and ineffective. Kathy spoke of the unrealistic expectations our mother had been placing upon her outward appearance. Although their words did not use those terms, as their meaning would not be known to any child, the theme of their experiences would make an internal connection and bring understanding as we developed into adulthood. My experiences and feelings would remain silent and unshared for many more years. With time, I too would be able to feel these things as my shipmates had at an earlier age, and make sense of the world to a somewhat greater degree than before. I would go on to resign my self-appointed role as captain, as I became aware that I was merely a passenger upon my ship. All of us grew to become contributors to the society in which we were placed. We made decisions on behalf of, and issued encouragement and warning to, others as well as ourselves. We based this upon what we understood of our world, and what we had learned in our travels. We would be far from the perfect and exquisitely successful souls we had imagined ourselves to be upon the open waters, but we were experienced. We were experienced with near death, experienced with foes that would tear us asunder, experienced with storms of the soul and mind, and pirates!

This story captures the imaginative spirit of childhood with the language of a great nautical adventure story and a sentence cadence that matches the action of the story. It brought me back to my own childhood in and around the trees and the sudden ways that kids can veer from makebelieve to serious discussion and back again.
