      Are you in the merchants? I was in the Navy at sea for 3 years, 9 months per tour. I remember the isolation and this was a crew I was with for those 3 years, give or take the ones that cycled out and new ones that cycled in.

      It's never easy. I became attached to people that were on land that I didn't even care about only because they represented contact. I almost went into the merchants when I got out, at least I thought about it.

      I ended up hiring on at AT&T in stead (it was Pacific Bell back then) and stayed for 30 years, so I never had the sea tour blues again. What I did learn is that your joy comes from is within you. Nothing outside of you can cause long lasting joy, even when you're in port. It's an illusion. I searched the world for a way to fill that aching void within me

      . I was almost 50 before I found out that it was Jesus Christ. Sounds simplistic and maybe even moronic, but I did try everything else and nothing gave me the long term results that I've found in faith in Jesus. I'm never alone now, no matter where I am or what's going on. Consider it if you never have, and go back to it if you have considered it in the past. Who you are when you're alone is who you really are.

        You loving it wasn't what I was reading in the thread I was reading you in (no idea where that was now). Yeah, I was an atheist too.

        It was probably the holidays - that sucked. A necessary decision at the time, but never again if I can help it.

        I used to love to work the holidays. Double time and a half and always bad weather so more work than they had people work. I was a total corporate mercenary. Now you couldn't get me to work through Christmas if you put a gun to my head.

        Well darn - we don't come back on here until the 30th - I am not sure why you are still able to post on the board as it is supposed to be shut down as of 12 noon EST, but really it shut down about 45 minutes after that. What time would it be out at sea right now?

      I hate the new board. If I'm not around, that's why.
