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.

    Rhonda, love your patchwork Dinghy! Love your sense of adventure, it would never do for us to ever partake an adventure together, I would see glorious trouble on the horizon, full of fun and mischief. The tethered sail would have to be patched on a regular basis just to make sure it could make a quick get away if need be! Oh, I’m sorry Rhonda, I’m not altering your story, but I read what Lisa added about you, and I was just caught up in the moment with the adventure of sailing in your delightful Dinghy with the patchwork, and tethered sail. I love it!
    Thanks for sharing your story.

    Rhonda, I’m not sure what I was thinking when I took your story and added to it. I’m for sure not an artist, and ever since I wrote the comment, I thought maybe I was out of place adding what I did to it. Don’t know what I was thinking, I’ve read nearly all the articles about “My Life in a Dinghy” and have so enjoyed them. After reading yours, it sounded like something I would do. My friends always said if there was trouble to be got, I would get it. Would never have thought of a story like yours or the other artists without having read it first. Again, i apologize. Hope to read more of your stories.
