When you sail alone


When you sail alone, the boat rocks with the wind, the surf, one's own movements to the bow and back.

Another climbs aboard and the boat slows. It then picks up speed with two on hand. One balances one's movements with and against the other's.

Another climbs aboard and the boat slows again. The captain is no longer the captain, the first mate might be the second or third or fourth. The boat picks up speed again. One balances one's movements with and against the other's and the other's.

The waves, the wind, the surf.
