Robert Jepson’s life involves water, and lots of it, so it’s little wonder that sailing, particularly in the Western Isles of Scotland, is his way of finding himself, clearing his mind, and writing from his “true self.”
But you can’t put a label on this guy. No, indeed—his endeavors have been as varied as postal worker, police officer, and power plant engineer. And if you add to that his enthusiasm for playing guitar, painting, and preparing vegetarian Indian meals at home, it’s amazing he still finds time to write at all, let alone sail!
As Robert prepares to tell us a little more about what inspires his writing, go ahead and navigate over to his self-titled blog, and take the plunge into some of his latest musings.
Robert’s two cents:
My greatest inspiration for writing comes from sailing in the Western Isles of Scotland, amongst islands, water, trees, and mountains. This is my sliver of space where I truly am, spending about six weeks a year there on my yacht. The remainder of the year I meditate upon selected photos to remember the feeling—in mind, body, and soul—of being there, the feeling of peace and connection with nature sustaining me until the next voyage. This clears my mind to write from my true self.
