Vacations are always good until you realize they are vacations and there is a reality outside of them. They always seem to put my mind in a place that I haven’t been in awhile-a happy place. In this case, it was surfing. There is something about surfing that continues to interest me. The effortless style, the smoothness you feel as you glide above the water, the taste of saltwater, but nothing is as powerful as the quietness you experience when you are sitting on top of your surfboard waiting for your next wave. Everything seems so ethereal when you are just floating by yourself. You can lower your guard. Weight begins to fall off your shoulders and you can start to see the world slightly different than before. Sadly, often times you don’t even realize the power of those moments until you leave them behind.
