Going in Circles

“We are going round in circles! Somebody is not rowing properly”

“Its not me, I am doing it like you taught me”

“Well, you must be doing something wrong!”

No matter how hard they tried, the boat continued to move in circular movements, creating more and more frustration between the people in the boat. This was supposed to be a fun day out, but certain members of the group were so focused on doing things right, the fun had been taken out of the activity, and everyone was feeling annoyed. ย Everyone that is, except the little girl at the stern, who was quietly day dreaming, her oar in the water, unknowingly steering the boat round and round.
