He was the first man to sail around the world alone, he did it back in the 1890's no radio no radar no GPS, one day when he was a very old man he sailed out of a harbor in New England and was never heard from again. I think I would prefer burial at sea. , I was thinking about Sren Kierkegaard when I made that comment a few months ago about the sickness unto death.
"-- healing and integration of the self -- comes by means of an authentic faith that "annihilates the possibility of despair" by trusting in God as the answer to the self and its alienation." I ripped that off of Amazon dot com, I have tried to read the concept of dread but it was way over my head, I am a coward basically I suppose that is why I think about death so much, you know that bit about a thousand deaths, I read your fortune last night, you are going to be shot by a jealous woman when you are 97.
