The anchor that keeps me grounded

Today marks 10 years since the maritime world lost this great captain and I lost the best Dad I ever knew. While I can’t believe a whole decade has passed, I still carry him with me wherever I go. Every anchor I see reminds me that wherever I am he is with me, encouraging me and supporting me as I embark on each new journey like he always did when he was alive. Not a day goes by that I don’t miss him or wish he was still here, but I am thankful that the memories I have of him are ones that have had a great influence who I am today both as a teacher and world traveler. He always taught me that every choice I made was the right choice if I was happy. This post is dedicated to my father, Capt. Ray Dunzelman. May you continue to rest in peace in the calm seas.
