Whatever day your Saturday is, that’s the day to get away from it all and immerse yourself in the peace and quiet of sailing, all day. It doesn’t particularly matter where you’re going, because the destination isn’t necessarily what matters: it’s the time on the water, far, far away from the office, the traffic, and the phone.
(That latter part – getting away from the phone – is a self-imposed challenge for us nowadays, as we carry bits and pieces of our office and day to day obligations with us with our phones. And while many of the phones are described as “smart,” one has to wonder how smart it is of us, as free thinking humans, to chain ourselves down to answering every call or text, no matter who it is.)
Saturday, the artwork, invites us into this perfect weekend afternoon, encouraging us to join the crew on the sailboat as they make their way around the rocks and inlets of the western Washington State waters. It’s a sunny day – not necessarily warm when we get in the shade – and when we’re not actively sailing, it’s time to just stand and watch the shore go by.
We may or may not meet fellow travelers – given that this is a fairly populated area, it’s likely that others, as well, will have a similar idea on how to spend their free time away from work. But there’s little need to do anything beyond give a friendly wave as we pass one another by, with the understanding that others, too, look for the quiet uncomplicated time in which our major concern is where we will stop and eat a picnic lunch.
Saturday reminds us – and we need to be reminded of this! – that life is not all work, not all commerce, not all brainstorming and coming up with great ideas to make money for the company for which we work, even if we are the owners of that company. Saturday reminds us to slow down and enjoy the precious life that we have been given.
