When the invitation to go paddle boarding with friends was introduced I thought, why not. Since the arrival of my fifties I have aspired to live in a world of why not,and this a fortuitous occasion to cross something off my bucket list, besides for the opportunity to spend time with friends while I apprenticed dedication and perseverance.
Although I had never paddle boarded before, after digesting frequent commercials where people leisurely drifted by on their boards, I was sure it would be a breeze, even convincing another friend of it. A reminder that things always look easier when done by someone else, but now I'm getting ahead of myself.
