An extraordinary day
After closing on the boat, I went to the boat yard where she is sitting up on jacks and filled out a work order to get her bottom painted (red), her boot top painted blue, her sheer line painted blue, and her hull waxed and buffed. After that, she will go in the water and will be taken to the marina where we will transfer things from Compass Rose to Sojourner. I hope that our first coastal voyage will be to the nearby Wooden Boat Festival.
I am thankful that tonight there aren't any raging winds and no feelings of anxiety. I am just glad to have had a full day of life's goodness, topped off by a good meeting tonight on resentment. Who hasn't had a few of those? But I'm not feeling any resentment tonight. I am filled with a feeling of tired peacefulness and much gratitude.
