My dad was a really good surfer, and by the time I was 10, he was dragging me out on some good days at Bells. I’d reckon they were solid, 6-foot days, and he’d tell me to wait on the shoulder. I’d see him coming through the barrel, and he’d just scream at me to go. I’d drop in, and he’d give me a hoot from behind – I’ve always loved it.
Grieving, like being blind, is a strange business; you have to learn how to do it.

So use all that is called fortune. Most men gamble with her, and gain all and lose all, as her wheel rolls… A political victory, a rise of rents, the recovery of your sick or the return of your absent friend, or some other favorable event raises your spirits, and you think good days are preparing for you. Do not believe it. Nothing can bring you peace but yourself. Nothing can bring you peace but the triumph of principles.
The Dalai Lama once said that every human being has two fundamental desires: to be happy and free of pain. I’m interested both in helping people and myself achieve these and also, in the process, finding out what our full potential is as human beings. In essence, there’s so much unconsciousness about how/what we eat and how we live which creates the problems that people face. I see so many sick and suffering people when I go on my lecture tours and, if I can help someone find their way back to a life worth living, that’s a good day’s work.
