Rowing by the Sun's Shadow

Therefore we thank Thee for our little light, that is 
dappled with shadow.
And when we have built an altar to the Invisible
Light, we may set thereon the little lights for which our bodily vision is made.
And we thank Thee that darkness reminds us of light.
[T.S Eliot]

Often, rowing blind -- I close my eyes
and pretend
or even; Ray Charles.
Direction becomes secondary --- Seeing becomes movement.
Hook / Hand; fastened.
How am I to know my ETA [estimated time of arrival]
when my left hand doesn't know
my right_hook's potential?
Opening my eyes
I am there.
