On my board looking at the horizon. Paddle, paddle, miss it. Miss it again. Waves dropping and pushing past me. Paddle, paddle, rush forward, stand up, fall down, completely under water. Back on the board, only me, the ocean, the sky, and the wind.

I love just sitting there cradled in the ocean, as much as those few times that I catch and ride a wave.

Forget the world. Forget me. Forget all my rights and duties and obligations and responsibilities. Forget all the questions and all the doubts.

Sometimes life can be so simple.
