Good Water.

surfing-and-thinking“Surfing equates to living in the very moment of ‘now’. When you ride a wave you leave behind all things important and unimportant, the purity of the moment is upon you.”   

 – Bill Hamilton

As the season for anything remotely looking like “good water” comes to a close once again, I find myself to the shore with an almost urgent pulling on my spirit; I have gotten much better about “night swimming”, and don’t partake anymore, unless it’s a special occasion. But, I still have a tendency to be out there at nighttime, watching the water and listening to its many voices sing their’ many songs. I think it is therapeutic for me to dissolve into the sand that way…

Beach Wildlife:

I have come to appreciate the fact that a huge part of my personal fondness of the ocean and beach is the wildlife associated with it all. Sea otters, sea lions, seals, dolphins (and even a baby killer whale one summer) swim the seas that I love; in essence, they swim the seas with me every time I am in the water. I am an animal lover anyway, but these animals are the sole keepers of a very different kind of love from me – a calming and healing kind (but, one that is full of natural respect, for my own part).
