Sadly, someone went to heaven today, but i bet he will be watching this video on a big screen up above.


to a good sailor .

I must go down to the seas again,
to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship
and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song
and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face
and a grey dawn breaking.
I must go down to the seas again,
for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call
that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day
with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume,
and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again
to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way
where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn
from a laughing fellow rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream
when the long trick's over.

RP the best way to go, as we all have to, is with your boots on doing something you enjoy. Beats all the other stuff hands down. Raise a glass or glasses to your buddy and celebrate the memories.

Is there a link between the video and the death?
