SNAKE STORIES TAKE 2


***Ok, so the last time I saw this beautiful Gopher snake I named "Tango" was when he was half dead, twisted and bloody in some chicken netting... Well went in the back yard the other day and almost stepped non him fully extended sunning.... He has grown, his wounds have healed and he seems stronger than before.. Interesting parallels we share, took a moment to just be, sat in a yogi squat and shared the beautiful warming sun that the harvest moon has brought us. He was so comfortable with my proximity and I with his.. I wanted to touch him, but also didn't want to disturb his resting place.... And like that I left him be...

Stay tuned for the enchanted story of a Yurt, yoga and a rainbow serpent..

CONGRATULATIONS

***Matt Calvani and Margaret Yao celebrated their love in fine style and were emanating happiness for their special day...

2 MEN I RESPECT

INTRODUCING THE DHARMA



***Big thanks to David Gray for snapping these shots at Lowers the other day....




Standard Sizes: 5’2” to 6’6”
Nose: 17 ½”
Width: 20 ½”-21 11/16”
Tail: 17 ¼”
Thickness: 2 ¼”-2 11/16”+

The Dharma blends modern surfing with the subtleties of riding a retro fish.
This board was designed to catch a lot of waves, supplying endless amounts
of fun to wave riders alike. Matt and I set out to design a board that was
not only fast down the line but also turned with laser sharp precision and
could pivot in the pocket. The beveled rail and concave deck concept allows
us to keep the volume of the board for glide while the maintaining the
board’s sensitivity in rail-to-rail turns. The outcome of this quad finned,
butt-tail wave whip is hands-down the most fun fish I’ve surfed. This design
works great back-side and front and a perfect blend of front foot speed and
back footed shredding. Suitable for clean lines, barrel riding, full rail
turns and a perfect platform to take your aerial antics to the next level.
Enjoy the ride and share the stoke. –Chris Del Moro 111

QUOTE OF THE DAY

*** You can't change the wind, but you can redirect your sails.....

DAY IN SD



DAY IN LA




MERCURY IN RETROGRADE

***Just in case things have felt a bit sluggish or unclear as of late.. The cosmos say....

At 20:00 UT (Universal Time) Friday, August 20th, 2010, Mercury the wise communicator—and universal trickster—turns retrograde at 19°01' Virgo, in the sign of the Virgin, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! The retro period begins some days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until September 12, 2010, when the Winged Messenger reaches his direct station. At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac.

Everything finally straightens out on September 27, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde. Mercury normally turns retrograde three times a year, but this year he turns tail four times, which is unusual.

INTRODUCING THE 1 and ONLY ----- DECK DIVE


***a.Kopps ducking for cover.

UNITE


“I find that because of modern technological evolution and our global economy, and as a result of the great increase in population, our world has greatly changed: it has become much smaller. However, our perceptions have not evolved at the same pace; we continue to cling to old national demarcations and the old feelings of 'us' and 'them'.”


The Dalai Lama, 1989

ABSENCE MAKES THE HEART GROW FONDER LOVE

LUCKY NUMBER 32t




***32 has always been my favorite number... It's always a good omen to see the digits line my pass as I wander. This was my airport security bin in France and these lovely sticks are my newest obsession. The little fatty is the Dharma and the round pin quad is the Spork.. Hope your all having a great day...

HELPFUL

I'm Sorry, I Forgive you, Thank you, I love you.....

A little Mantra rich in power.
