Synopsis: Theo Grutter is a man who has spent five thousand days and nights fishing the open ocean alone. He has had a good deal of time to ponder Life's mysteries and to organize (and reorganize) his thinking. He is a modern-day Walt Whitman singing his song of Self, or John Muir intimately describing the process of reservation and renewal with a sense of wonder at the infinity in the natural world. At the heart of it, Theo Grutter is a scavenging explorer of philosophy, science, history, spirituality, and nature, madly picking up wisdom, feeling vibrations, and following hunches. He invites fellow explorers to open their hearts and their minds to listen to the voices on the winds and from the seas, even the flora and the fauna, the parasites and the microbes; he promises to navigate the "smoothest tags the water allows."
About the Author: Theo Grutter is a big, friendly bear of an unpretentious, spontaneous outdoorsman. Born and educated mostly in Switzerland to enter the corporate world, he soon discovered that this life wasn't for him. He moved to Paris and married Clara, a concert pianist. They landed in New York to search for a lifestyle more to their liking in which to raise a family, which soon grew to include five children. They lived in many places, finally settling in a small Mexican Pacific coast fishing village in winter and traveling up to Sitka, Alaska in the summers, where Theo still fishes as a solitary commercial fisherman. Theo and Clara took yearly walkabouts in many exotic countries of the world, with Theo ever observing, learning, and writing about how life works on Earth.
