Van’s kayak hung for years in the garage with Van dreaming of returning to the water. On summer day, he announced he wanted his kayak down, he thought he could go kayaking. With reservation, I got it down and placed it on the lawn for his inspection.
“How can you go kayaking when you can’t even sit in your choir without severe pain?” I asked. Van replied “I think I can do it.”
I watched him carefully guide his body inside the kayak. Van then looked up with a beaming smile, gave a thumbs up and said “Yea!”
There were two occasions when Van returned to the water. This picture depicts that spirit of perseverance. Keep fighting through the pain…. Dreams don’t die unless you let them.
