Time waits for nobody hey!
I’ll be leaving terra firma in hours now: Just had a call from the shipping agent: The Cap Capricorn arriving from Sydney, will be docking at 14h00 and I’m to meet at the container terminal gate at 15h30 for customs Immigration stuff, before boarding. So sorry no pics as the ship ain’t here yet! No idea how much cargo it will take on here, and what departure time is…. Life as a voluntary prisoner hey….!
I’d imagine ‘you all’ have lots of questions about this container ship travel, and I’ll try and anticipate and answer them in the first few blogs.
I just stocked up on a few, 20 day snacks, bought 8 different nationality newspapers on Kindle, and sending this last blog with good internet. It will be as remote as a wilderness sailing, cycling, skiing trip, but with lots more infrastructure ‘comforts’. ‘Nice’ to not have to power as a scarce resource like it normally is when I’m alone sailing, cycling or whatever. I have no doubt that Scarcity and its twin: ‘Restraint’, will be one subject coming out of the blogs from the ship!
So with real excitement flowing, soon I’ll l be meeting and checking out my new home for the next 20 days. Hmm quite a scary thought, but not so really. Prisons are supposed to be the place of biggest freedom, if one is just able to capitulate once! Hah, this ship will be far from a prison, and the solitude, and seeming restriction on so many fronts is the freedom I love!
Actually compared to the ‘cosiness’ of Allone, I’m worried it will be too large, impersonal, and I’ll get lost! Being on the wide open, ever changing, Pacific Ocean, day after day, will be like heaven for me!
Anyway it will take me a few days to settle in, and this should give you a chance to ‘check out all the stuff’ on this One Point Zero website. It’s all for free; there is no sales pitch for things to buy, or behind the scenes beneficiaries who will benefit from your browsing.
See it as your One Point Zero library and every few days reading and thinking spot, ‘with others but on your own’. Thinking about stuff that everyday life doesn’t give you time to do or political / belonging correct-ness steers you away from.
The library will be expanding each week. Besides this adventure / travel type blog, every few days there will be new, deep One Point Zero content added to the Menus Subjects, and you’ll be directed to it through this blog.
In its uniqueness it is a combination of Fun and Serious stuff, and I make no apologies for that…. It is designed for reading and engaging one’s mind, rather than just being a quick, look, see, get entertained, and move on site….. Yes, there could be more pics in the content, but at the same time it’s the thoughts, views, and ideas content that is going to make this site what it can be… It will develop and transform as the journey progresses
If your soul wants to respond, make a comment on the blog, or send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
No judgements will be made, just your courage and participation valued and respected.
Enjoy, and I’ll be back within a few days with the first blog from the ship, and share my new home, and work office for 20 days!
Watch out for it here on One Point Zero
Also I’d appreciate it if you tell as many of your friends about the site, so we can expand the diversity of thought and influence, and get a richer result.
If you haven’t already, read the launch story here You can subscribe there for my future e-letters which I’ll send it maybe monthly, bi-monthly or whenever he journey ‘needs’ one…
Bye for now…!
