If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever. ~ Thomas Aquinas

It’s scary venturing out into the big bad world. Our ship will get beaten and battered by the waves of life. But, unlike that ship, we won’t sink. We will be all the stronger for it. The purpose of a ship is to brave the seas and travel from port to port and explore the seas. As is our life, we are meant to travel, explore, and live life to it’s fullest.

God Bless!


About Tamara Hoerner (1253 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. “So here I lay in my 23rd year
    How I wish I was in Sherbrooke now
    It’s been 6 years since we sailed away
    And I just made Halifax yesterday
    God damn them all! I was told
    We’d cruise the seas for American gold
    We’d fire no guns, shed no tears
    But I’m a broken man on a Halifax pier
    The last of Barrett’s Privateers”
    –Stan Rogers


I'd love to know what you think!
