Introduction Janna Cawrse Esarey fell in love with a fisherman when she was nineteen years old. He dumped her. Five years later he came crawling back. She dumped him. Two years later…well, the story ends (or begins) with a honeymoon across the Pacific on a leaky, old, and conspicuously small sailboat. Janna’s travel memoir, THE MOTION OF THE OCEAN: 1 Small Boat, 2 Average Lovers, and a Woman’s Search for the Meaning of Wife (Touchstone 2009), is as much about navigating relationships as navigating the world. Janna blogs about love-and-marriage for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer at “Happily Even After." She lives in Seattle with her fisherman, their two daughters, and the friendly ghost of a dog named Scout.
