Breathing Salt Scented Waters is a memoir with an abundance of salty sea spray between the lines. These are the stories of Gus and Sophie who sailed, like replica Viking navigators, the thousand-and-one islanded waters of the world’s largest, most majestic temperate rainforest, the Tongass in the Alexander Archipelago.
Gus and Sophie shared a common ethical credo – they were unknowing existentialists believing that each individual is ultimately responsible for the consequences of their own life circumstance. Prizing creativity more highly than conformity, they grappled with circumstances in a uniquely individualized way. These two adventurers felt that sincerity, self-analysis, and conviction is all one can expect with regard to vindicating ethical decisions, and since they saw no cosmic scheme in life, they accepted the notion that people must invent their own meanings of life.
