Failure To Launch, Part 3 of 3


The needle pricked as it entered my arm. On her third try, I asked, “What’s the problem?”

“Your vein is collapsing,” the nurse hovered over my wrist, hypodermic needle in hand. She shook her head in frustration and walked away. I was confused and relieved she stopped poking me. Rick tucked the soft warm blankets around my shoulders and whispered, “It’ll be okay.” I gazed into his deep blue eyes and drew his reassurance to me.

My mind jumped to a new question. What if Dr. Valletta, my surgeon, hadn’t forgiven me? Yesterday, I seriously challenged his authority. No chance to apologize. Guilt washes over me.

Rick stood beside me and rested a comforting hand on my shoulder.

Two nurses arrived and one announced, “Time to go.”

Failure To Launch Part 2 of 3


Rick and I are on high alert. We’ve been driving for three solid days on this endless gray highway. The detour sign is missing. A truck driver, using hand signals, shows us which lane to take. “Look out,” I shout, pointing straight ahead. Traffic is diverted into our oncoming lane. We proceed on faith.

“Yeah, I see that.” Rick looks around, double-checking the direction of the traffic flow.

We share the highway with 18-wheelers. Dirt graders and construction crews repair miles of deep ruts and pot holes. Flaggers in orange-vests stand under the sizzling sun, listlessly sweeping their flags side to side. Tomorrow, we plan to cross the border to the States. I’m so ready for a decent WiFi connection.

Failure To Launch Part 1 of 3

Dock lines are curled and ready to toss. Waypoints charted from marina to destination. LA VITA is ready from mast to keel. Rick and Lynn are primed to go. It’s two weeks before Christmas 2014.

“Time to raise the dinghy and tie her down on the foredeck,” says Rick reaching for the halyard. “I’ll pull the dinghy on board while you crank the winch, okay?”



“Sure, I’m ready. Let’s do it,” Lynn replies.

Lynn grabs the winch handle with both hands and pushes. The winch barely moves. Lynn slumps on the deck, rubbing her arms. Her shoulders ache. She fails to raise the dinghy.

“What’s wrong?” Rick asks.

“I can’t turn the winch. I can’t raise the dingy. I don’t have any strength.”
