I’m going. I’m leaving my comfortable, secure, left corner couch cushion and going on a boat tour today – I leave in 10 minutes. Boat begins boarding at 10:15am.
I don’t want to go – you know that. But this is an event offered through our community activities, and when it was first publicized last month, I was so excited – I signed up and paid. We’re going along the Edison River, and we will hear about the ecology and the history of the area. Sounds great, right? So right now, I’m wanting to want to go (does that even make sense?).
I don’t know any of the other 10 or so signed up. Unless Kathy is the same Kathy I’ve met around the neighborhood a few times. She’s nice – a potential friend, maybe.
But I digress. I am going alone. I’m going to have to smile and make chit-chat, and then really concentrate to hear and understand our tour guide. My concentration is pretty sparse right now – very hard to stay focused.
I’m psyching myself up: planning to take some pictures – that should be fun. Maybe God has someone on this adventure who I’m supposed to meet. It looks like a lovely day – the rain is to the north right now, so maybe it will all be good.
And I’ll come home, take a nap, and curl up on the couch to finish this entry with The Boat Trip, part 2.
Wish me luck! Or better yet – pray for me!
