Today’s ThinkerBite is life relevant, it expresses both a thought and an action: “Don’t wait for your ship to come in, it’s been waiting inside you all along.” The origin of this idea was an expression used by sailors of old while waiting in  port for their jobs (Ships) to come back to the shore. In those days travel on the high seas could prove dangerous to your health and your pocket-book. A large part of the reason was due to the time factor involved with ships that traveled by sail-wind power. The duration of  a sailors waiting sometimes consisted  of  weeks, months or even years before the ship returned, if it was able to return at all. Not to mention that on a sailing ship you are subject to the power of the elements on a rather unprotected platform as treacherous as good old windows 95.

 Pirates patrolled the oceans of the world during those days  just searching for cargo ships to attack, plunder and ravage. Precious metals, drink, fruits, nuts, berries, cannons, guns, gun powder and just about everything else was hard to come by was sought. The truth was that it was easier to steal from others at the point of a gun or a sword, than work for the things people desired and even for the necessities of life.

Yes, I know but it is an interesting time in  World History and after all, there aren’t any sail powered schooners flying the “skull and cross bones” on today’s seas.  At least none that we should all be concerned about encountering in modern everyday life.
