Some days it is! Yesterday I went with a friend for my FIRST surfing lesson. What a BLAST!! It was fun,exhilarating and an amazing workout. I had NO idea. The surf was big, so just paddling out was a challenge. I think I actually forgot to stand up all the way on my longest ride, so it was more of a “squatting maneuver”, very graceful I am sure. Still I was screaming with delight the whole time.
So what does this have to do with art? Well, they say that one cannot create in a vacuum, but rather needs to experience life and then respond to it through their work. Just part of the job, I guess.
