Light enough to carry on your back, sturdy enough to cross the sea, as old as Noah, full of the promise of adventure, the Coracle reminds us of how far we can go when we live life, light. All the coracle asks is for us to keep our eyes on the stars, be the navigator and trust our physical bodies to carry us forward with the one paddle on offer, when you paddle a coracle you have to keep your head up or you keep going round in circles!
“I think you really should make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”
Jon Krakauer – Into the Wild
