Let My Cargo Go

“Lift up your rod, and stretch out your hand over the sea, and divide it; and the children of Israel shall go into the midst of the sea on dry ground.” That’s what god told Moses the last time an important Red Sea route was unpassable. And once again, during Passover no less, an obstacle in that region was removed as the Ever Given was de-wedged and the Suez Canal is slowly getting back into the flow. Yacht-Zee! Maybe we went overboard on this story, but it was hard to fathom such a stern situation could barge into our lives and turn the tide on global trade. I did knot see that coming. Naut at all. I know, I know. Too schoon.
