We are still bobbing about in our boat
watching the day turn to night
sleeping long and deeply
I have been getting 10 hours of slumber
which is really quite remarkable considering that I have not been walking.
Maybe it's the salt air
or the fact that we are away from it all
no demanding schedules
I have lost track of the days
I would love to live my everyday life in this space
I am not too sure why I can't
what would it take to be in this head space
there must be a secret that I have yet to discover.
I met an interesting fellow at the laundromat
he's retired living aboard his 41 foot sailboat
he sold his home to finance his dream of getting away from the hustle and bustle
He is free to come and go as he pleases
he looked very relaxed
and he highly recommends this way of life!
It sounds like he has made the right choice and it suits him
There is something magical and restorative about holidays
I guess that's why we take them
to nurture our souls
and tend to the messiness that clutters and clogs our minds
I aspire to being joyful and happy wherever I am
because isn't it the moment, the right now, that is important when all things are said and done?
Lots of time to ponder more
I'll leave with this image from many moons ago
really just a kid myself!
Smiles all round!
