    A POSTCARD THANK YOU NOTE

    For as long as I can remember my grandfather has smoked cigars. Never cigarettes (at least not in my lifetime), only cigars. With a glass of red wine or beer and a cigar balanced between his fingers, he always looked like the most elegant man to me. Cigars smell like home, cigar boxes carry their scents better than anything else, and so these wooden sticker-loaded boxes have always held a very special space in my heart. This one is my favorite.

    MY BIGGEST FEAR MY GREATEST LOVE: THE OCEAN

        The ocean calls to me. In the most absurd way, because I’m terrified of it. Did you know that more than 70% of the ocean is yet to be discovered by humans? We have no idea of what‘s down here. Hell, we know more about space than we do about our own oceans. There’s movies, photoshopped pictures, horror stories of people being attacked by sharks or drowning. There’s so much to fear. And yet I can’t contain the urge to be in the water. I can’t go in deep yet. My heart rate speeds up so much and I begin to panic. “In surfing, fear is healthy. Panic…
