Being on the water and staying on the boat is working its magic. Just to get out of the house, strip down to bare bodies, and soak in the sun and salt air is a cure for so much.
This morning I got up early, drank a tincture of olive oil and lemon juice and then did an hour of yoga on deck. My back is better today, not feeling stiff. I like the meditation and focus on flexibility. I left sleeping beauty inside but she was soon up and moving about. We have no agenda today because it is just another day in paradise.
An acquaintance has attached himself to me and texts every weekend to find out where I am anchored. He likes to come out on his boat and hang out. Every weekend is a bit much though. I come out to get away from obligations, including the social ones. Time to let him know in a gentle non-damaging way that this boat is not the hang out spot. I sense he is lonely, but I know better than to sacrifice my enjoyment for the sake of others. It leads to resentment.
Time to have a real breakfast now. I'm cooking for her this morning. Breakfast in the cockpit with my wife and our Labrador seems like a way to ease into late morning.
