casting off

I spent time on Navy piers growing up,
now I spend time on Navy piers for work.

It never gets old, and it always brings
back memories which I treasure.

Hugs and kisses, smiles and tears.
Sadness.  Excitement.  It's all there.

Traditions like Cracker Jack uniforms,
proud parents, a young ensign
on her first deployment,
gotta love it.

Writing this just now, thinking about then,
thinking about today, I wonder if this is
why I like casting off myself.
