And when the work is finished…
Swell has an uncanny ability to adapt to most all my needs…from time to time, she transforms into the official executive office of the Voyage of Swell…
The teapot whistled and I refilled the thermos with tea for the third time already that morning…can’t work without tea!…Lists in view, steam rising from the mug, my fingers set fire to the keyboard of my lil Macbook…tap tap tapping as I churned out another few emails…sip sip sip, a cashew or two…sip sip sip…I play the letters like a musical instrument…more emails, setup the new chart program…sip sip sip, more emails, catch up, catch up…seems I’m always catching up!
Swell spins patiently on the mooring buoy near the wi-fi tower…
The sun sneaks through the porthole–dancing, playing, leaping on the setee adjacent…the bright yellow beam taunts me…”Come out and plaaaaaaaaaay!!!” it seems to say…
“Soon…bientot…fa’a tata…”I reply. I pull the curtain closed. The surf is small, I climbed the mountain yesterday…today I work, work, work!! We get out only what we put in…
Then, when the work is done, it feels so good to play!!
