The job I have playing guitar on the cruise ships of Holland America Line has been a real education in geography and the world's cultures. Even though we spend only a day or two at each destination, my perspective has been enriched by this experience and I am grateful for the opportunity to open my eyes and ears to people I would not otherwise have met. As T.S. Eliot so aptly put it, "The journey not the arrival matters." That being said, it is good to be home and after seeing a fair part of the world, I have a better idea where home is. I think he said something like that too. Anyway, right now I am happier than ever to see my friends and family and I am grateful for their continued support as I look forward to embarking on my 3rd world cruise in 2012. I'll miss you guys and girls!
