Save your journeying soul

12 Apr 2022 | Mission | 0 comments

When your ship

Long moored in the harbour,

Gives you the illusion

Of being a house;

When your ship

Begins to put down roots

In the stagnant water by the quay:

Put out to sea!

Save your boat’s journeying soul,

And your own pilgrim soul,

Cost what it may.


Dom Helda Camara (1909-99), 1981.
