My philosophy for living...unfortunately I spend as much time in the water as I do on the board

Without falling off the board you never learn how to ride those waves.

Sometimes it takes a good teacher to show you how. I love this quote.

If you can find a good teacher you can ride the waves so much sooner. Thanks for dropping by and hope you visit again.

I've always like Jon Kabat-Zin's work. Simplicity at its best, thanks warm for this reminder.

I think basic truths are very simple, like this metaphor for life, and can be understood across the board without being so esoteric. Simple doesn't always mean easy though... I know a lot more things than I LIVE as if I know, know what I mean? Knowing is one thing, living is quite another.

Love your poetry. Thanks again.

BF - neat, simple and a cool metaphor for life. You're right, living it is something else and to learn to surf requires its own deep commitment. In free-flying, my own equivalent to surfing, the greatest freedom comes only after years of practice and dedication.

I guess you hope you've learned enough by the time the big wave comes.

Thanks for the kind words about my verse.

It seems the waves are getting higher these days warm....need a bigger board...

..and a good sense of balance. The coolest surfers ride the largest waves.
