give you the clouds in funny shapes it does!
some days those colorful lines come from one end of the beach and stretch all the way down to the swash
it’s a funny way the wind blows
never the mind it has as it whispers across the crests of little bumps on the bay,
the long one can’t seem to let any size in these days so travel is required
so we wander along the stretch of a line that kings once took
venture through the folly and flow into the inlet
the bumpy crests are defined she said
lines appear along the edge of our playground
it is ours because we are playing right now
come in and it will be yours, she said
she don’t care who plays, just someone play and dance
younger, they like to jump and toss buckets, but
those who have been here awhile just dance…..
backwards, forwards, some on one and others hanging toes
so once again she says, thank the wind.
Wakey, wakey with a little cup o' java. Stretchy, a little good day reading. Phone interview w/ a retailer coming to the area(possible job!!!!). Have lunch with a friend (possibly his last holiday), that part made the day. Then up to the shop for some pics of Gary and Mark working. Spending the afternoon w/ Jordan!!!! More good stuff. Dinner w/ the best parts of my family unit........ not too bad for a guy like me!
"Years ago, I was an angry young man, I'd pretend that I was a billboard, standing tall, by the side of the road, I fell in love with a beautiful highway"
Today was Talking Heads day. I listened to good ol'e Mr. Byrne and his cohorts for a while, got motivated to do some pics and even caught a really nice swell. Water's getting cold though.
I'm not sure if I'll be going out in the water anymore before spring, the old bones don't like the cold H2O!! anyway.... enjoy....
I got to hang out with a local shaper last week and took a bunch of shots. It was really cool to watch him at work on a new board for someone. Something I haven't done in quite some time. A true craftsman from working in tight spaces to "rigging" something to make a certain shape for the customer. I'm looking forward to getting some more time with him over the course of the winter here. enjoy
After the car club on Saturday, I took a walk down through my beach. There is a spot, unfortunately surrounded by two high rise hotels that was near the break I surfed as a kid. The swash that flows out to the ocean has a really quiet feel to it and is nice to go up to the dunes and just relax.
I have been surfing since I was 12, with a few detours through the years, mostly because I have been a screw-up and not appreciated what I had. Always looking out the window and never admiring the living room. Any way, I've been back into the waves as full on obsessional hobbie for about 4 years now. This with the new passion for photography are starting to come together. Enjoy......
graceful is your love shining upon my face
so much the brighter with all the mirrors of waves
the night clouds begin their fade into a pearly mix
of orange, yellow, and violet
yet I wait alone and time is just
the breeze will slowly pick up
the schedule of how and when, no concern
oh the cool comfort of your touch
surrounds me and I am not alone
So I have been participating in Global Awareness Projects artwalks and shows since March. Last night and tonight we are showing at a night club in Myrtle Beach. Today we had 175 kids from a local school for 4 workshops ranging from Improv to Painting and it was a wild experience to see all these kids from so many different walks of life to create in their own individual way. Spring Tide was done especially for this show.
