"One day, you'll leave the account
Take a wife, father children.
Sea less and less of the sea
Until she becomes like a painting hanging on the wall,
static and irrelevant to your daily existence.

But she'll keep on calling you.

And when she does, you'll step into that painting
and feel the swell beneath your feet.
It'll add come back as if it were yesterday."

"Is that so?"

"I've watched you and yours handle the account since I and mine left it.
Accomplish things that no one I ever sailed with could dream of.
From what I've overheard, if you reach Skeleton Island might mean the end of the governor.
Might keep the account alive a little while longer.
Is that so?"

"That, and more."

"Then I will take you to it.
Hold on to this for as long as you can for all of us who once had it and walked away."

I've read Hakim Bey's T.A.Z. and then Pirate Utopias a very long time ago, but they have really stuck with me. Cherish the good, free, open spaces that you get, for they will not last forever, taken over by capitalism, tyranny, egotism, laziness, pettiness, or a combination thereof. When they are done, don't hang on, break away and make for the next TAZ.
