the sailor’s psalm 23

2015/01/img_4168.jpg

The Lord is my pilot, I shall not drift.
He guides me across the dark waters.
He steers me through deep channels.
He keeps my log.
Yea, though I sail ‘mid the thunders
and tempest of life,
I shall dread no anger, for He is with me;
His love and His care, shelter me.
He prepares a quiet harbor before me.
He anoints the waves with oil
My ship rides calmly.
Surely sunlight and starlight
shall guide me on the voyage I take,
And I will rest in the heaven’s port forever.

Moby Dick

so does the name “Moby Dick” conjure up thoughts of a sailor’s life on an 1800’s whaling ship, sailing with Captain Ahab, on his quest for the giant white sperm whale in Herman Melville’s classic text by that name?

or do you instead think of the amazing drum solo by the late John Henry Bonham, drummer extraordinaire for the band Led Zeppelin?

thoughts?  does it have to be either/or?

what if we combine the two – and rock out with some Led Zeppelin, WHILE sailing on your boat, preferably without a crazy white whale nearby to capsize you.
