on restlessness

Why is it that the words that we use to describe restlessness have their origins in boats?

  • unanchored
  • adrift
  • unmoored

Maybe it’s because restlessness marks the start of change and the beginning of a journey. After all, you have to pull up the anchor before you can set sail.  Once you’re adrift, you only have to look at the horizon to decide which way to go.
