Preparations for sailing

13 hr: Skies are clear, cloudless, light blue with haze of whiteness
Memorial Day holiday and so shops are closed.

Two days before I ship out for Greenwich, London and I am organizing my belonging and hoping that I will make it across the ocean without throwing up. My thoughts are further complicated with lost objects that I am prepared to find at the museum: maps, flags, spoons, shoe leather, sails, gold pocket watches, tins, diaries, language and visuals, morphing into collections of memories.
