You probably have all heard the time analogy that goes something like this: when counting down to the start of an olympic race, five seconds can seem like an eternity; when you are 5 years old your birthday takes a lifetime to arrive. When you are in your sixties, holidays come around quickly. Similarly, I have learned eight weeks of vacation goes a whole lot faster than eight weeks at the office. Not that I am complaining rather I am just feeling like my summer at home is whizzing by. No lazing around Abaco; no cruise up the coast, just local racing and sitting around my pool.
The laundry is caught up, only the floors need to be mopped or vacuumed, and I can start catching up on my budgeting, website creating, and organizing my racing boat, as well as SPRAY, my favorite boat. Oh yea, this week will get me back on track with improving my sunfish handling and Fast Lane Team strategy and skill building. Lastly I need to get inspired to write another article.
My website will include services for sailing instruction, sailing photography, and perhaps ghost writing. On August 2 I will begin my last two years as a school counselor. Therefore, with each tick of the clock, I have to save for that round the world boat. The time is whizzing by. Unlike the kid waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve, I feel breathless trying to garner enough money in only two more years.
Anyway, this sense of time slipping away makes my thoughts all jumpbled. It is as if before I finish one idea, another one pops up. Time to focus, time to get some sleep so I can be the first one in the water tomorrow morning for my 5:30 am hour swim. Time to say good night, sleep well, sail safely.
Love to all, Marlen
