Look. Listen. With Attention.

Gilbert Medam is a Brazilian guitarist who plays bossa nova. I like his rendition of Bluesette.

Gilbert is also a photographer and painter. Check out his photos on his blog and paintings on Facebook. Be sure to be listening as well as looking.

To quote Gilbert:

"The art is not just to be skilled enough to paint and draw, but rather to look. Art of Looking.

Look, look, look. Listen, listen, listen with attention.

There is a lot to learn that way. And this learning is the key to understanding."

This is true in sailing as well.  Use your senses.  Be there.

Until next, sweet sailing.
