The "Doldrums" are an area around the equator in the intertropical convergence zone that are known to sailors for their light and variable wind patterns, often resulting in the boat having to motor through, or wait for a favorable wind shift.
While we are some 42 deg. North of the equator, that is what it has felt like around here lately. We haven't made any forward progress on the sale of the house, and while we have looked at some boats we haven't found any particular one of interest.
So here we sit, seemingly adrift and waiting for a favorable shift in the wind...
What do you do to keep your spirits up when you get stuck in the Doldrums?
