There are some things that just can’t be replaced. Some feelings that, when once experienced must be experienced again. This is true in all aspect of our lives. Some of these things are best avoided, in order to prevent an unwanted dependence from springing up, but some things really should be given in to.
You spent the weekend with your best friend on his motor luxury yacht. It was gorgeous. Both the weekend and the yacht.
The weather was clear and warm, with only a few wispy clouds to be seen far off in the horizon. Just your kind of weather.
You were fishing. The motor yacht had carried you swiftly to the exact spot you’d been meaning to fish from for some time, at which point the motor was killed and the peace and serenity enveloped you as you got your gear ready.
You were surprised that more fish were biting than you’d even hoped would. Your friend didn’t seem to fare quite as well, though. Maybe it was the bait you were using. The salesman had said that this bait was just the very thing for the area you would be fishing in and the type of fish you were hoping to catch. It seems he might have known what he was talking about. You’d bought the bait, not because you believed him, but because you were in a rush and didn’t want to spend time searching for bait on your own.
You have a barbeque and play some cards. You feel like you are on a different planet than the one you were on only yesterday. The leather seats and fabulous finish make you feel like you are a VIP on some all expence paid vacation.
As the weekend comes to a close, you realize exactly how much this trip has done for you. You have spent time in the open air, refreshing and enlivening you, making you feel ready to get back to the life you had thought you were growing weary of. You strengthened your relationship with your best friend. And you found out what it takes to catch a lot of fish.
When the new week begins and you return to ordinary life, you find yourself thinking back on that experience on the motor luxury yacht. It’s something that you need to do again. And soon.
You make a mental note to go back and pick up some more of that bait. You know you’ll be needing it because you’ve got plans.
You look up a charter service and book a yacht for a week during an upcoming holiday. You deserve this. Your first experience was the kind that you won’t forget. And now you’re hooked. Many fish will be next month, as well, you laugh to yourself.
