This blog has suffered. For the longest time I blamed my SF Sailing Examiner column that took the joy out of writing about sailing. And then I realized it was because I wasn't sailing as much. And because of these two things I suddenly had an unfulfilled need to write. So I started a swimming blog about my own pathetic attempts at swimming and my daughter's much more successful swim career.
Then the holidays happened and I realized that the Examiner gig, though not very fruitful, had actually created a decent Christmas gift fund. But I didn't go buy sailing gifts, I bought swim gifts. With the proceeds from my sailing writing. Maybe just short of ironic but still worth bringing up.
Which brings me back to writing about sailing. I realized that I had depleted my funds from the Examiner gig and the only way to refill it was to write about sailing again. So, to fund my swim habit, I'm back on the sailing wagon. Wow.
Maybe it will just be the Examiner column but I really want to bring this blog back to life too. I've sailed about a dozen times since the cobwebbing began that I've yet to write about and I have a few more planned so there is *some* content. But until then, please click on this link so I can buy a new swimcap please.
