My friend Mikey is Passionate about surfing with a capital "P". And like anyone with a passion, he wants to share it. Mikey has shown me loads of surfing videos. I think they are cool, but because I've only been surfing a few times I don't "get them" like he does. But the other day he showed me a video that amazed me. It educated and inspired me. In other words, it made my hearts smile. Dark Side of the Moon is a poetic account of why surf photographer, Mickey Smith, loves what he does. This video seriously gives me goosebumps every time I watch it. I could just look up the "lyrics," but I love that each time I watch it I find a new piece that is poignant and magical.
