Illustration: Direction, Circumstances

"I found that tides and currents do not determine destination. That is what rudders and engines and sails are for. While you don't dare ignore the tides and currents, you also never get anywhere if you let them dictate your direction. When you can, you make them serve you. When you can't go with the currents, you learn to cut across them as best you can, but always with your destination in mind." (Russ Metcalfe)
