Captain Richard Phillips and the Pirates

“One thing people don’t realize. They say, ‘Your life must be great now.’ My life was great before. I was in my comfort zone then. I knew when I was going to work; I knew when I’d be home. And that knowing is where the comfort is. Now I don’t know what’s going to happen … People ask me [whether I’ll] miss going to sea. I say I won’t miss going to sea. I won’t miss a lot of things you have to do to go out there. Because it’s hard work. It’s long hours. But I will miss being at sea. It’s truly an amazing thing to be out there and walk on deck, to be out there with the sunset or moonrise and stars in the sky reflected in the water. Very few people get to see that.”
