Paddling out

Dusk approaches, and I'm out paddling in the water. My body undulates with the board as I go over swells, the wind gently breezes by, and I see a fish flip into the air before diving down into the warmth and safety of the ocean. For a brief moment, I'm a little bit scared as a large wave looms and I realize it's just me and the sea. But as I lift my upper body a bit and crest smoothly over, I relax enjoying the stillness, completely at peace.

I like this blog and think the "real" bertha must be very interesting! I will be in Taipei next week for work but perhaps, if you are available, we could have a tea? I will be in the Grand Hyatt next to 101. My website: http://www.13rueBleue.com/ email: le_fino@hotmail.com. Drop me a line if you are interested in a tea ;^)
