So I put my Man-drawn plough up for sale

It's gonna be hard to part with, but it's all about letting go isn't it.

Not a surfer, huh? How far are you from the beach? Or is it lack of balance for the board on water?

Great ad, Jack!
You know, I've always wondered what those things were for!
May the transferrence happen quickly and bountifully!

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Surfing can make one quite concentrated I think. But then so can meditation :lol:

Ya know if that poor fellow in the photo above had just pulled his plough like he was supposed to, instead of standing around on it, he surely would not have been swept out to sea and into such a perilous situation.
