These few days of enforced idleness feel good because we were so busy before departure, and so engaged in running the boat in rough weather of late, that the contrast is welcome for awhile. Idleness should be sampled in small delicious chunks, like a piece of rich fudge. With idleness, like Brylcreem, a little dab'll do ya. We've read (total this week 5 novels.) We've snacked, slept, talked, and feasted on food that doesn't need chasing. And I've been writing, which feels good. Come to think of it, idleness may not apply if you're doing things you want to do rather than stuff you must do. Whatever you call it, this has been just what we needed.
Estrellita is down in the SE Trades on final approach to the Marquesas and Craig might already be in Hilo. With 927 miles to go, it's best to remain philosophical, unhurried and open to whatever each day brings.
