The "Life is Giving Me Lemons and I'm Catching a Cold But Trying to Keep My Head Up" Dance Party



This video is short because I don't feel much like dancing these days. Too many lemons. Too little sugar and water. But such is life. It can't always be great (or even good). It doesn't help that the rain is putting a damper on my surfing and skating. You know, there are times in life when guys are told to "take it like a man". No one ever says that, or anything even remotely similar, to women (even though we go through shit just as much as guys do). Maybe the fact that we have carte blanche to shed as many tears as we like helps. We don't have to soldier on bravely when we don't want to. Right now, I don't want to, but I don't feel like crying either. I generally take out my anger, sadness and whatever else tries to eat at me on the waves or in the pool or on the bike or even on the board. I will continue to do that, especially now that the rain is gone for a bit. I'm taking the tarp off the ramp; it's been on there for a couple of weeks. I'm also gonna surf my ass off if the waves cooperate.

Do I have any good news? My kid is healthy and happy. As long as that continues to be the case, I will have few complaints. I also have a new board—yes, another one!!!!!—on the way. Dave Allee at Almond says my new Surf Thump will be ready this week. Yeah, that will put a smile on my face for sure. (It's true . . . I'm that easy to please.)

All time fav band. Spent much of my youth emulating attempting to Jimmy Page and 40+ years later and I am a little closer to doing so.
Still devastated John Bonham is not around anymore!
Board looks great! About to get a similar traditional single fin made too!
