#977 Polishing Brass
Posted by Tall Ships America on July 21, 2011
You spend all day every day making decisions and it can be exhausting. Solving problems can be tiring. Sometimes, you just don’t want to have to think and that is where polishing brass comes in. It is a mindless, repetitive, minimally exertive task that needs to be done. Your ship is your pride and joy and you want her to shine.
It can also be a deeply meditative task, one which forces you to focus on one small part of the ship at a time. As your mind clears and the brass brightens, you reach your zen. Yes, polishing brass creates an inner state of peace and that is awesome.
Thank you Jennifer for the idea!
