Sailing in Seizures of Laughter
Lyrics from Paul Simon's "Rhythm of the Saints": "I could be sailing in seizures of laughter."
Actually, when I sail there are a lot of seizures of laughter. You know, since I've quit working (or did work quit me?), there's been lots of smiles, many fits of giggling, and belly-laughs. Before I had to grow up and get serious life was like that. Life can be like that.
It's like I've done a complete 360 (full circle for those of you lacking in that kind of lingo). Back to being a kid in many ways would be a more accurate description of the internal morphing that's taken place.
One day this will happen to you. Count on it.
A friend living in Oregon is about to have his job quit on him (or is he quitting the job?). You'll get different, I tell him. You'll be back to who you used to be, I said. No longer will your life be run by the clock and a day planner, I explained.
Oregon friend Eric is also looking for a sailboat. I imagine we'll shop together. They say misery loves company. Shopping for a boat is anything but misery. This I look forward to. I also look forward to witnessing Eric's personality change from this to that.
Next year come April Eric will definitely be sailing in seizures of laughter.
