Against The Wind November 14, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Travel & Leisure.

When storms brew in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans . . . most of us retreat from the raging currents.

Not so, surfers, windsurfers, and kitesurfers.

While Sandy marched up the East Coast, we swung by the Gulf Coast and enjoyed watching a kitesurfer sail through the air with the greatest of ease.

Well . . . it looked easy from where we stood.  On terra firma.

The first step in being happier is . . . to decide be happier.   To find things that challenge and inspire us and enjoy them.

When we control our thoughts (rather than letting them bounce around on auto-pilot, getting into all sorts of mischief), we control our lives.

Aah . . . that’s better!
