Dear Chengfang: It’s unusual, when I’m on land, sometimes I dream of being at sea. Yet when I’m at sea, especially if its bad weather, I dream of being safe on land. Right now the boat is going so fast, and bouncing around so much, that I wish I was on land. But at sea I get to see things that I can’t on land, I get to see the albatross, and the flying fish, and dolphins, and the stars of the southern hemisphere. So sometimes you have to go outside of your comfort zone (land) to learn and experience new things.
