Woodworth Meditation

Classic-Sailing-Yacht-ELENA-Under-full-Sail-What-a-siteHey little brother, we got this.

Do you know who you are?  Son of a son of a sailor…

and I doubt Jimmy Buffett

minds me borrowing that line

because we’re all just borrowing each other’s stuff anyway.

But back to what i was saying…

We’ve heard the same stories about him

He was crazy as fuck

Funny as hell

A football player without a helmet

Sailing down the coast

Racing down the river

Full on, no brakes, no fear, all in, pure Woodworth.

Like you in that jet,

you know what you’re doing,

You always did.  Or at least it seemed so.

So did I, only I was asleep at the wheel

while you had your nose to the grindstone.

Somehow I felt small and believed it, 

It was never a competition anyway.

 

Remember what it’s like to be on a sailboat?

Sails full, the rush, America’s Cup

Straight on home, not caring if we ever

Get anywhere because this is the one

Place I remember that I felt

I was already home  

I know he did too, our Grandfather Woodworth, 

But he started to forget

Who he was in light of those flashy

sideshows money can buy, 

in the world of  fame and fortune.

You were wise to learn these lessons

I guess I heard them too.

 

And here we are now

You running the base 

me running marathons.

I hope you understand that

this whole time we were trying

to get out on that boat at sea,

but as it turns out, we always

have been on the sailboat out at sea,

in our kitchens with our families.

In love, being love.

 

So pick up your guitar, little brother and play us on out

in this round,

with dad knowing the meaning

And mom knowing the words and

You and I sailing right on through.

 

I love you,

Your big sister

Jill
