“On life's vast ocean diversely we sail.
Reasons the card, but passion the gale.

Alexander Pope

British Poet
(1688 – 1744)

On August 30, 1980, Christopher Cross’ song, “Sailing,” climbed to the top of the record charts and remained there for a full week. (Click here to listen to the song and watch a lovely video.)

Today, our Meme Express prompt is all about sailing.

Do you like to sail?
Have you ever been in a regatta?
What is your favorite type of sailboat?
Do you know how to rig a sailboat?
What is a jib, a keel, a main, a rudder and a spinnaker?
Would you rather ride in a sailboat or a motorboat?
How do you think recent gas prices have affected the boating industry?
How might sailing serve as a metaphor for life?

Catch a breeze. Grab any of these questions, and see where the wind takes you. Feel free to use the quotation and images . . . or not.

Post your poem, story, song, photo or other entry on your blog. (Be sure to include a link to the Meme Express. Grab our train graphic from the sidebar for your link, if you want.)

Then come back here, and post a comment with a link to your own entry. (Need help making an active link? See Super-Simple Linking. Feel free to bookmark it for future reference!)

Of course, if this prompt seems to stump you, you are free to peruse the archives of the Meme Express and publish a blog post on an earlier prompt.
