" evergreen "

---

steady ship upon wavering waters, you remain steadfast and true.

your open sails catching the winds as they furl and wisp in dark nights.

cast out from the homeland shores to unfamiliar seas, you remain honest and vigilant. no errant striders will find you alarmed or ill-prepared.

through storm, gale, or unexpected denizen of the deep, you keep your golden heart intact and unyielding to scorn or prone to charmed trickery.

we follow the lead of this vessel to all destinations, and believe in you wholeheartedly to the beautiful salvation or inevitable ruin of us all.

tonight's homework:

craft your ship of hopes and desires, then set out into the world filled with confidence, bravery, and a thermos of delicious soups...and maybe a first-aid kit.
