“A ship in port is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.”

— Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper

This inspirational quote passed thru my in-box the other day.   It serves as a thread connecting thoughts about launching various projects.  On a personal note, I was most happy to see my son start his own adventure as a Peace Corps volunteer.  As his father I was happy to drive him to the airport and see him off.  His orientation was in Boston.  His destination is Cape Verde which is located approximately 300 miles off the west coast of Africa.

To hear a pretty cool ad for the Peace Corps <– click here.

The next ‘launch’ of sorts is that of a newly formed ‘crew’ of volunteers who will lead the Mid-Atlantic Facilitators Network.

So here’s to those who courageously sail or fly  perpendicular to the coast whether literally or figuratively.  Hail to explorers such as Vasco da Gama, Christopher Columbus, Jonathan David Lesko, and/or to the newly elected Board of Directors of MAFN.

What projects will you launch this week?  Please share your plans here with a comment.

Bon Voyage and Good Luck!
