Tales from the Wheelhouse: Adventures Aboard the Denali

Gary Gorss

Storytelling has been around since the beginning of time. Stories told and adventures lived are the basis of countless books that are loved by millions of people. While being passed from person to person, stories can inform and entertain, change a belief, and offer a new perspective.

Whether as fact or fiction, or as song or poem, stories can provide a glimpse into the past, present or future while entertaining the reader. Stories catapult the reader into another time and place and allow the reader to hear, taste, touch, smell and see the experience through the mind's eye.

As time goes by, it seems, it is harder to put everything down on paper in such a way as to hold the reader captive; to make the reader want to keep reading and find out what's coming next. Sure, it may seem to be an easy task to think of a funny, exciting or memorable experience where you are familiar with the whole picture. But the hard part of storytelling is to reproduce that picture in detail and paint that picture with words, so the reader can experience and enjoy it.

I have written a few stories that tell of past things that have stuck in my mind. These stories are the things that I have done, things that others around me have done, and the fun that I have had telling of these adventures. So come along with me on my journey and let me spin a tale of humor and adventure. This story is just a small window into which you can look and see, in your mind, the seafaring adventures and sights that have been written for you to enjoy.
