getting divorced...

You experienced that on your own. Or you know some couples amongst your friends who went through it. It's hard to realize, but it's normal in these days. Nothing lasts for ever, although we all hope it will, whatever we're getting started.

If the divorce is happening to your parents, or to one of your closest befriended couples, you are suffereing with them. But you don't want to lose either parent, or the friendship to either one of the divorced couple.
You try to mediate. But you feel you're sitting between the lines. And you feel somehow helpless, and that you've lost an intact world. And you'll hope that the ex-partners will be good friends after a while.


But the longer you are mourning, the longer you're staying in the past, the worse you're feeling yourself.


I don't like to feel bed at all.
I'm a visionaire, living in the future.
I try to help where I can, but as soon as I realize the loss, I'm making plans how to proceed on.
It happened I lost my website yesterday. I didn't have any backup myself. I had to rely on my webmaster and on the server solving the problem. It worked out well, it's there again.
But on my mind I already had plans how to create a new website with the leftover material.

Don't mourn too long. Think soon about new solutions with what is left over. And the sun will come out again.



Mike and Aled are getting divorced. Rockpool won't be anymore what it has been. A synergy of two genious people.

Mike, the thorough, detail- and high-quality loving artist and craftsman, Aled, the outstanding paddler, visionairy designer and buisinessman.


Rockpool will keep on producing what they already did with great success. Fibreglass kayaks of durable, high-end quality, perfect in the detail. You can buy an Alaw Bach without having seen it. You'll just love it. The master of fibreglass Mike is very likely to have it handmade by himself.

In-uit will be Aled's new company. He'll be designing kayaks. He'll get them produced in the high-tech way, and also in high-end quality. See more details on his website. The sea kaykaing family is looking forward to the first babes. The sea kayaking family is growing, so will be the range of companies producing kayaks.


What will happen to *my* babe, the
Underground Greenland style signature kayak I was planning to launch with Rockpool at Canoecopia?
Well, both ex-parents are still pregnant with it. One has a mold, one has a plug. We'll see who'll give birth to that babe. Out might come fraternal twins, alike, but different. Or only one embryo might survive. But both are from the same family. From the sea kayaking family.


Probably the pregnancy will last a bit longer under the divorce stress. And I'll have to take the big sister to
Canoecopia, my loved Qaanaaq SS from Waterfield Kayaks , Japan.


But we'll have something to expect. There will be at least one new Greenland fibreglass or carbon babe, sooner or later. I'll try the white embryo the second next week in Wales. And I'll let both parents know what I'll think about the genes they have given them.

Strong words, softly spoken. Thank you Freya

As they say, the start of something new brings the hope of something great yet we know that things seldom come easy

Here's to the future, whatever it may hold
