When my son Mason was born I didn’t have very many friends who had little ones. I was at a wonderful new mama group, but I wanted to be outside. So I asked a few women if they wanted to go walk with me the next week in Portland’s beautiful Forest Park. That first week five women showed up. The next week 10 women showed up and then 15 and so on. I saw this was a way for people with little ones to gather. From there it evolved.
When a wave makes its way across the ocean and finally breaks on shore, the water doesn’t move far. Waves transport energy, not water. The water molecules rotate in small circles, and, after the wave passes, they wind up not that far from where they began. But anyone who watches or rides waves knows that energy is transformative. Surfers are much the same. We go back and forth, rarely moving very far but, once in awhile, we catch and ride a wave, and are transformed.
