Life in Balance

It was great at NAIS to meet old friends. Even more fun was that often their first question was “did you buy a sailboat” or “are you sailing?”

Rob Evans did a presentation called “Six Secrets of the Wily Leader,” and this point was Number Six: Nourish to Flourish: get support, go away; drink cognac; lighten up.

Thus, I now have official, documented and expert advice that says I have to go away, lighten up and sail a boat. :)

We did our maiden sail with the kids on Southern Rival just a week ago last Sunday:

We were particularly proud of our daughter Eve, who had been too scared to go out on the test sail of the boat. She was just the opposite on our maiden sail, and felt calmer and more excited and happy as the sail went on. Just as important, she and I had no signs of feeling seasick, as Doug and Steph were both feeling a touch of mal de mer.

We plan to sail again next weekend. Here’s a pic of Doug at the helm:
