"Steady into the wake she goes," howled my sister as we watched the family boat plow its way out of the now familiar canal path. Each trip was an act of course, I mused, the choice to leave our small waterway home, to ride in the wake of the much bigger boats who had visited our sinking city of late. And yet there is a sacredness in courage. The courage of venturing out with the intention of returning home again.
