the upside

Spontaneous sailing adventure!

My friend A called me at 5:40 this evening. “I know it’s really short notice, but do you want to go sailing? Now? We’re leaving in half an hour from the marina.”

It so happened that I was still at my desk, only a few miles from said marina. My first response was no, but thank you so much for asking. But five minutes later, as I was shutting down my computer, I thought, “Why on earth not?” I had nowhere else to be. No-one was expecting me or counting on me. I had a warm jacket to take. Be spontaneous! GO!

Me. On a boat.

So I did.

Sunset. So lovely.

And it was lovely. I got a little queasy, but a turn at the helm cured that. The sunset was so pretty, and the company so pleasant.

I sure am blessed; with friends, and freedom, and beautiful surroundings. And while I miss going home to a family, evenings like this remind me of the upside of being single and kidless.

Just sayin’.
