There were many days where Johannes and I would dress up and make costumes and props including a ship out of a big box. Dressing up as pirates was certainly a favourite one to do. It was only natural that I should choose my brother to be the young hero, Jim Hawkins. At the beginning of the story, Jim gets wrapped up in a quest to find a hidden treasure as a cabin boy. He sets out on a journey which becomes more involved than he thought, but learns a lot about trust and his purpose for this voyage. My brother was going through a similar stage in life when he graduated from high school and deciding what his next step in life would be. He has had the opportunity to travel on his own and discover what he might do in the near future.
