I wish I could just be out at sea again. Standing a four hour watch up in the tower feeling the power of the ship as she coursed through the waters at high speed with all the noises and sounds and speech of an operational "man of war" at night.. Four hours in the midnight watch, just yourself or you and your radio sounder. No politics, no excessive bull shit. There was a single purpose to your life and you took it with dead serious intent. Chatter wasn't politics...it might be home, or the next "get laid, get fucked up" port visit or a new computer game, the latest "skuttle" gossip...but that was it....just you, your binoculars and your duty. Life for that time was blissfully purposeful and uncomplicated.
