Sonder: n. The realization that every person is living a life as complex and vivid as your own.
Here we lay in this boat yard, working tirelessly to finish the refit. Months of our lives have been spent in the bilges as we work to ready her for the next leg of her voyage.
Years of our lives have been spent working on her, maintaining her, with our hopes and dreams suspended in her rigging. So much work, thought, and pride has been wrapped up in this one hull which now lays on the hard surrounded by other boats in various stages of their boat life. Some look new, some have been decaying for years, but each and everyone has a story, a past, and a voyage.
How many boats have had their stories pass through this yard? Where have their stories gone from here?
