Someone recently responded to a kid's complaining that a class was boring by stating, 'boring people are bored.' I understand the premise. On my list of concepts to research is now boredom. Perhaps people just substitute the word boredom for feeling lazy. Boredom seems to imply it is someone else's fault that one is not motivated to do anything, whereas lazy puts the responsibility on one's self. Anyway, my point is someone dear to me recently said they were bored. I refrained from saying, "You must be a boring person." It sounded insulting so I softly said, "Yea, sometimes life is boring."
Why do I bring this up? Because during my 62 day cruise I never had a second of boredom. Now that I am back home I am challenged by getting my laundry caught up, cleaning out my clothes closet for another school year, cleaning my sunfish, racing my sunfish, engaging with my women's sailing team, practicing for our next women's regatta, maintaining SPRAY's dock lines, training my dog Sammy (aka "My Lady"), planning a slumber party and going to work. There is so much more I want to do, like take my boogie board to the beach, kayak, organize my photos, find my Olympus point and shoot camera and relax in my pool. One thing is for sure, I cut up my credit card this morning and will once again start documenting my cash flow............Bored, NOT I.
