About mariner2mother

I'm a mother of a very spirited 14 year old son, and a former merchant ship's deck officer. To feed my creative side I take photos and make a very occasional batch of soap. I am also Reiki attuned and am a student of Energy Healing, having used several healing modalities to work on myself and my family.

Back when I was a child, puttering around on the coast of Maine in small boats, I spent countless hours discovering how wind, tide and current affected the boat. We’d row down the coast toward the gut, where a one lane wooden … Continue reading

My brain dropped out. Right out from the bottom. Or was it the top. It’s gone. Disconnected. But only for a while. Can’t think. Words swirl around but I can’t grab them. Second thing to hit my brain this morning … Continue reading
