Doldrums is a maritime expression dating back to the era of sailing ships where the vessel would enter the area of the ocean around the equator where the winds barely blew. It would be calm, as if nothing was happening; and for a ship with sails, it was easy to get stuck "in the doldrums." That's How I am feeling. A friend said the other day that if she was shut up in her house for two months as I have been now, she would be depressed. When she said it, I didn't think so. Since then, I do feel a bit of cabin fever.
