It's coming! Most of you out there probably know EXACTLY what I'm talking about. And those who don't...mid-April starts one of my biggest loves (besides Xing Fu)..sailing! I admit it--obsessed...guilty as charged. Right about now my brain is pretty-much only thinking sailing. It has been a looooooong winter & thankfully this coming Saturday I will be out on the water--practicing & getting ready for our first regattas at the end of the month. Last Saturday I helped clean & get the boat ready for its exodus from being on the hard & back where it belongs--and where I belong---on the water. It is really like coming home--there is always a part missing when we put the boat away for the season & I'm no longer out there. The longing--interminable. But the wait is over--just being back down in Annapolis with the rest of the crew last weekend was so great. Time to get out the foulies, check that my gloves & hat are in my sailing bag, & Keens are somewhere nearby. Prolly need to pick up some warmer shoes for the spring though--Saturday looks to be only around 58 degrees....still, TIME TO SAIL!! WOOHOO!!
