One Lucky Duck

It’s catching up with me that I only have one month left of cruising. I never thought when I started working as a singer on the Silver Wind three years ago, that I would still be doing it today and enjoying it so thoroughly. There are still so many places I haven’t yet visited that I would like to see. I feel so conflicted – such a huge part of me wants to be back “home” and settled, working in NYC and having more regular contact with my friends and family… but the other half wants to continue this adventure forever. I’m absolutely addicted to this wondrous lifestyle. You don’t realize how diverse and strangely accessible the world is until you find yourself in a career of this kind. I can hardly express the gratitude I have toward to universe for all the amazing opportunities I have had.

Yesterday I went on an “Archipelago Zodiac Cruise” around Sept Illes in Canada, where we spotted Minky whales, porpoises and birds. I had this distinct moment during the trip where I could quite process my joy and gratitude. So all I could do was lie down with my face in the sun and smile!

Aside from the obvious travel benefits, this career has introduced me to so many amazing friends from all over the world. I’ve hosted people in NYC and stayed with friends in the UK. I can’t wait to see what else is to come! Maybe a… National Tour?  Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, I wanted to share some more photos and performance videos from this contract. It’s been an amazing two months so far!

    Yes, you are lucky, but you are smart to take advantage of these wonderful opportunities of meeting other people from different countries and ethic groups. So few people are able or try, to enrich there own lives using their job as a stepping stone. I’m so proud of you and know you will find success in life where ever your adventures lead you. Love, Grandma Dee
