As you can tell from the nature of my post that surfing is an important aspect of my life. At one time, because of my love for the beach, sitting in the sun and swimming and surfing, I found it hard to get to school or do anything else. I found myself, not where I wanted to be. Time was getting away from me.
I’ve always been an artist, but I really wanted to be better. I went to the local, junior college and took a drawing class. After that class, I was awarded a half time, talent grant and went to school for four years on scholarship. I always took one art class and one academic class. You don’t HAVE to go to college to get ahead, but it sure does help.
If my life’s path had not turned in this direction I can’t imagine where I would be.
I learned to start things and finish things. I learned to use my time well.
These are a few drawings that I did very quickly to prove my art abilities, to someone here in Potrero. She thought I was lying about my academic credentials. I can’t say as I blame her. Lying is a favorite pastime of gringos in Costa Rica.
Anyway, I have a lot of time on my hands here, sometimes. We do not expect to have waves until next Friday.
I have created new goals for myself on my blog. I would like to create a better home page. Who am I?
Once I have done that to my satisfaction, I’m going to create a Facebook page for the Secondhand surfer.
I live my life one day at a time, one wave at a time, and now, one post at a time.
Why not, that’s all you can do, the same as, you can’t drive two cars at one time!
And the clock ticks, tick tock, time talk.
