I joined the Royal Navy to please my father and stayed to help fight the French. That despite the fact that I much prefer dry land, I do not like the constant movement of a ship at sea or even at anchor. It gives an alarming impression of instability when stability is preferred. Besides, no matter which ship I am assigned, the men never seem to trust me. Nothing I try works. Looking back, I see a lifetime of failure. This is only the latest. I can do something about it, though. I say good-bye to Will and I jump.
