There is a well-known soul tune about sitting on the dock of the bay. It's all about the rhythms and cycles of one life as well as life in general. Though somewhat melancholy, it is a song that has become classic. It expresses common experience in a musical story; not quite a ballad but very close. The accounting is that the song came to be as the writer sat on his houseboat.

So it is in late August stopping off in Jerusalem as the sun sets. First, the sun is setting earlier. We can tell by the colors of the sun on the returning M/V Block Island. The discussion on the pier is no longer about plotting the next day's adventure. The conversation is turning to the hustle of planning the return to school.

So at the pier, there is an air of summer passing melancholy, the working Port of Galilee continues it rhythm. The ferries come and go on schedule. Pleasure boats move to their respective docks. Charter fishing boats unload their charges with the pride of the day's catch. But we need to disagree with one thing; this beautiful scene painted by the setting sun is not a waste of time. And it is a pleasure to make this dock our home.
