“I’d have to say, that is usually in the hot sun’.

This was a sticky page.

As administrator of this blog, I have tagged this page to make it my cover, until I decide to change it. I maintain a minimalist presence. My – who am I – and who I am not – was written in the embryonic stage, of this venture. It gives you a synapses synopsis, of Secondhand Surfer ~ unburdened by detail. That is the nature of this journal. It is the “essence” of.

My posts are photos and poems, opinions and confessions. At times I am cryptic, while at others, embarrassingly revealing.

The unexamined life is not worth living.

After thirteen years studying and pursuing a spiritual life, I chose to move beyond what I knew. I decided to Let Go, and leap forward into the unknown. I crossed the threshold of my front door, and began to navigate life, blindfold. Many years later, one day at a time, I continue surrendering to Providence.

I wanted to connect more with people, yet side step the main stream of life.

Not controlling, but choosing, day by day,

I have become Secondhand Surfer.

What I do is document. I keep it simple. I’m learning photography. I share photos of everyday surfers, in my home town of Fernandina Beach, Florida, and also those of Playa Avellanas, my home away from home.

All surfing is photo worthy. Surf photography has always been a dream of minel The surfers ability is relevant and irrelevant. I steal bottom turns, floaters, cut backs, nose rides and catching air, only to hand them back. It takes time and patience.

My heart is one of equanimity.

I now have a web-site,

I am always improving my page to enhance your viewing, and ability to purchase photos.

Life is an adventure.
