What has had an impact on you or has changed you?
Surf! Not only does it feel very mindful to lie in the sea in the evening at sunset, I get such a kick when I catch a good wave. As a (beginner) surfer you fall down nine times out of ten; it is literally trial and error. But, on the tenth time, when I ride a wave It feels so good that I forget that I ‘failed’ those times before. I try to take this thought into daily practice. Falling and getting up is part of life, at times when things are going well; enjoy them intensely and be proud of them, just like surfing.
