There are two things in my life that guide me through and through and that give me direction for everything I decide to do . Surfing and Yoga. Both (for me at least) are interchangeable synonyms for doing something in my life that Tim Winton artfully describes as this: 

'Watching a little girl or a middle aged women smiling like a maniac as they come cruising by one-foot of mush. Or a pod of dolphins doing jumps off an empty pointbreak. Or surfing with a couple of whales spouting and tails-slapping just behind the break. All this is good for the soul. To me it's not a sport. ... To me, surfing has always been soul business. 

It's the pointless things that give your life meaning. Friendship, compassion, art, love. All of them are pointless. But they're what keeps life from being meaningless. Catching a wave and turning and dancing and looping in towards the beach is one of the nicest forms of pointlessness I can think of.'


If you have found 'your pointless thing', yoga, surfing, fishing, singing, painting or cooking, the doing that makes you feel full and free ~ good on you. If you haven't - please head out, explore the open and find it!

with all my love,
