On sailing

I was on a boat and it had strings attached.

I enjoy sailing. I don’t have a sailboat, and I don’t know how to sail, but sometimes I get lucky and my friends invite me over to their boats.

I like it because when you’re on a boat, you can’t really do anything but sail. You can’t go anywhere. If there’s good wind, you can go fast and you’re busy with the sails and navigating. If there’s little wind, you just sit there and enjoy the sea. It’s one of those in-the-moment activities.

If you haven’t ever sailed and you get the chance, you should take it.
