But this year I made very few summer plans.
I just let the season unfold.
As a result, I spent a lot of time surfing in the Pacific Ocean.
I paddled with old friends, new acquaintances, and one adorable seal. The summer of 2013 taught me to slow down and appreciate the power of wind and tide and silence. I fell down more than I stood up, but I learned to relax - both on the waves and off.
By late August my body was exhausted but my mind was totally at ease.
See you on the other side...
