The doldrums

This is my second day in a row without a boat trip. That is my longest stretch so far this season. I managed about 6 hours of video logs, which brings me up to date again. With no time on the water, things can get a bit melancholy around here. Oddly enough, I learned the word melancholy in Japanese last week: sokohakatonaku. It expresses the idea that one is neither here not there. Ho hum. I would rather be there (on a boat) than here (behind my computer). Allow me to compose a haiku in honor of my sokohakatonaku state of mind:

Boats drift atop waves
Blowholes burst open and shut
Eyes empty, I blog
