Re: The great things about owning a sailboat that no one tells you about
An extended cruise, or even a single vigorous day, makes you focus on where you are. You forget about what ever is wrong with the office, the home, and life in general, because you can't do anything about it now. You simply live, focusing on what is immediate, both good and bad.
I like the same thing about climbing. While in the midst of it you can't worry about some other thing. All of the petty problems are put in place, you sweat out the BS, and what remains is a good clean human. That's how it feels.
It isn't as simple as relaxing. That's a child's view of vacation. It is a separate world you go to. The mountains can be like that too.
