I have heard variations of this story again and again—this African goddess who can make dreams come true. Up and down the coast of West Africa, fishermen would not dare to leave the shore without first asking for her blessing. I am a sailor who was never very superstitious. More than anything, I know that the sea is never to be taken lightly. However, I have rituals that I perform whenever I set foot upon a seagoing vessel. I have also learned that just because you can’t see something it does not mean that it isn’t there.
