The boys love to go to Cisco Beach on Nantucket Island to surf and see the beautiful people

“Wake up,” I said to the boys on the day of the Nantucket Ozone Classic, a surf competition that was founded in honor of the late David “Ozone” Ozias who died in June of 2001 at the young age of thirty. David seems to have been one of those humble guys who was loved by many and who may have shied away from having a surf competition named after him.

I was in a hurry to get to the beach and be part of the true Nantucket scene with oiled up teens intently watching the surf and cheering in the 120 surfing competitors.

Divisions were divided up based on age, sex and board style and surfers were given a 15 minute block of time to surf and were judged by a panel of local experts.

The swell was the best they had seen in three years, albeit somewhat small, but they were tricky and the surfers had to be selective on what waves to choose to earn high scores.

Below are my photos…oh how I wish I had a longer lens.

How Nature Heals, A Story From aspenreallife.com: #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at aspenreallife.com#hownatureheals#intotheforest#hoarfrost#textures#natureheals#aspenreallife ...
