I sailed a three day regatta this weekend. I really do want to blog about it. My mind is buzzing with all the stories I could tell you, the mistakes I made, the lessons I learned, the funny things that happened, the people I met.
But I'm going to wait a while before I write anything because I've discovered something weird about blogging, or perhaps it's really something weird about how my mind works.
If I wrote about a days' racing on that day my mind would be full of so many details that I would probably bore you with all the random stuff I would tell you and the post would be very confused with no real point.
On the other hand, if I wait a day or two before writing a post about a regatta I find that I forget a lot of the irrelevant details (as if you cared whether I went right or left on the second beat of the eleventh race) and that only the most interesting (at least to me) things about the weekend stick in my memory and then I write about that stuff. It also makes it easier to construct each post with a main point or focus.
You probably know someone who just prattles on about everything that happened to him or her that day, and then you know someone else who just tells you one or two interesting things when you meet them.
I want to be like the "someone else." So wait for it...
In any case, I need to mow the lawn first.
