Ronda’s, Life In A Dinghy
I have wandering toes that explore this wonderful world of ours, seeing the art of life. I always want to find the beauty and passions surrounding me and add them to my soul, just like this colorful patchwork dinghy. I have a deep thirst for knowledge of life so the inside of my dinghy is filled with pages from books which have taken me to so many different worlds and walks of life.
In my Dinghy I would go where the winds would take me, not knowing where I would end up but just enjoying the journey. My sail might not be perfect, in fact it has weathered some storms that have left the canvas forever changed. But it is full of stories and can always be patched for another journey.
I can only imagine the mischief that would find Ronda and I if we were to travel the world in her colorful patchwork dinghy. Mischief seems to follow us where ever we go.
