The surfer cannot command the ocean’s waves. She can only wait for the perfect conditions and show up with a surfboard.
Our lives are constantly rocked to and fro by waves that are outside of our control. We drift in and out of sleep, and cycle through its various stages in waves. Inspiration comes in waves, and so do our moods. The morning, the evening, the season, the weather – are all waves of different frequencies that dispose us in definite ways.
Yet, every one these waves are temporary – both the good ones and the bad ones. They will pass and give way to other waves.
The choice we have is also the choice the surfer has – to synchronize our schedules to show up with a surfboard when the conditions are just right.
