Work as a dance, dance as you work

I spent a few hours last weekend helping a friend wet-sanding the hull of his sailboat.

Apart from getting uncomfortably cold when it started raining, I enjoyed the work very much in its own right - using my body, finding the movements that worked, bending to dip my sandpaper block in the bucket, up again, swish, swish, swish, down again, a dance, using my entire body.

Going there I expected to be tired and achy afterwards, but I wasn't. My knees were achy but they always are nowadays.

I am itching to do more.

I did however spill red paint on one of my favourite hats. Bah.


  1. Sometimes it's good to do some real work, which means not office work. That's one of the reasons why I enjoy living in an old house. There's always plenty of things to do >:)

  2. I don't, however, like fixing things around the house so much ;)

  3. The fixing of things is boring, but refurbishing can be fun, kind of creative work, making something. Maybe comparable to your knitting, just a different variety >:)

Be nice!
