Sea Fever BY JOHN

Sea Fever BY JOHN MASEFIELD I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky, And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by; And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking, And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking, John Masefield 1878–1967 I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied; And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying, And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying. I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life, To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted knife; And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover, And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over. British poet John Edward Masefield was born in Herefordshire. He studied at King’s School in Warwick before training as a merchant seaman. In 1895, he deserted his ship in New York City and worked there in a carpet factory before returning to London to write poems describing his experience at sea. Masefield was appointed British poet laureate in 1930.

The definition of a free radical is that it’s an unpaired electron that’s extremely reactive and is capable of causing chain reactions that destabilizes other molecules, causing more free radicals. Free radicals cause oxidation, oxidation causes apples and bananas to turn brown, and metals to rust. Free radicals are thought to cause DNA mutations which can cause cancer, among other maladies. Our body uses some oxidants to fight chronic infections, and bacteria, and of course pollution, among other things. Sound familiar? It’s part of our complex immune system. Deprive at your peril. The body produces some antioxidants (endogenous), more or less to regulate the oxidation process. However, because the toxins in our environment are not a constant, you must adjust your antioxidant nutrients to maintain your immune system balance. My antioxidant supplements of choice are: Vitamin C, a water soluble essential nutrient, and the most common, and is particularly potent in combating cigarette smoke and pollution. I increase my normal dose when I feel symptoms of a cold, or in a room with someone showing symptoms. Vitamin E is the most abundant fat soluble antioxidant, and is one of the most efficient antioxidants available. Vitamin E is the body’s primary defender against oxidation, specifically LDL oxidation and artery clogging plague formation. . Reminder !!!
