Memoir Minute: What surfing means to me

These days I'm busy working on a memoir, tentatively titled, Memoirs of a Starving Artist, all about my time as a struggling writer and the funny stories that I have to share.  I figured I'd start posting some very short snippets from whatever I'm working on at any given time.  Here's my latest paragraph, all about what surfing means to me:

"Unlike team sports, surfing is more of a personal journey. It is a direct connection between the surfer and the sea.  Surfers describe it sometimes in spiritual terms.  This might seem hyperbolic to those who don’t surf themselves, but launching yourself into a rolling wave that has travelled thousands of miles across the open ocean puts one in tune with the rhythms of nature in a way that few other sports can match."

I'll try to keep this up as a regular feature here on the blog.  An easy way to update it from time to time. :-)


  1. I do love the ocean and I'm facinated by what is under it. Now I can appreciate what surfers get from rolling on top of the waves!

    Great writing and an interesting post, Kenneth.

  2. Thanks Janice! I've been pretty lazy about the memoir this week. Busy planning a KDP Select promo for Natalia at the moment. Something's got to jump start that one! :-) Catch you later.
