"Go Sailing Young Man/Woman, Go Sailing"

This morning I listened to a talk show on NPR.  The topic was about 20 something's - the phenomenon that more young adults are living at home longer, becoming fully independent later in life, and delaying casting off their last dockline and setting sail on their own.  I've no idea if this is a good thing or not. I think maybe not.  Social scientists have started studying these young adults, comparing them to past generations and will let us know what the data suggests soon.  I'm hoping that they will discover that leaving the nest (mooring) sooner rather than later is a better way to go about life.    I also hope that they take a look at kids who sail and discover that sailing fosters the qualities of independence which make for strong, individuals and young adults who are likely to leave home sooner rather than later.  Maybe a whole generation will hear the words "go sailing young man/woman, go sailing" much as the generation after the Civil War heard the phrase made famous by Horace Greeley, "Go west young man, go west". 

I realize that this blog entry treads very close to waxing philosophical.  For this I ask for your indulgence.  Also I want you to know that CBI's IT department is working night and day on upgrading this blog so comments can be submitted and we can start having dialog.   I'm worried about this. I'm concerned that my blog honeymoon is about to be over.  Ah well, time to cast off the dockline.....
