Lexington - Captain Bob: 1*. 18' south. 38*. 41' west
We are on our last long leg of the the whole World Arc. We are just south of the equator and planning a small celebration tomorrow when we cross a second time. I tend to just put my mind into neutral and take it a day at a time. It seems like only yesterday we took off and it seems like I have been away from home forever.
I have been making list of things I need to do when I get back. There is nothing all that important but it is spring at home and a lot of things have been neglected. I will probably do the usual, focus on the urgent and neglect the important. I will have the added adjustment of ending the trip and ending my occupation as a physician. I gave my practice away to do this trip but I probably have not truly adjusted to retirement. As a matter of fact, going back to work would be the easiest thing for me to do. I might be tempted to do so locum tenens type work but I am not sure I want the hassle. I was a solo practice doctor for all my career and now I have been sailing around the world for 15 months. I am probably too independent to work for anyone.
I still have time on the boat to think and make list but I am not sure I am making many decisions. The best thing to do is not rush into any decisions. That is easy for me. I am a bit of a procrastinator.
May fair winds fill your sails with good decisions!
