how one turns to the intimate side of surfing to deal with the loss of a loved one: a beautiful, heartfelt story by filmmaker Nathan Oldfield

[vimeo http://vimeo.com/28056957] This short moved me in so many ways. Although, I can't even begin to imagine the sorrow that Nathan and his family are going through, I can definitely relate to how the ocean can be a place to heal and to reconnect with something that is bigger than life.

There have been many times in my life where I have turned to the ocean to heal, to escape, to relieve stress, to gain a sense of place whilst major life-changes, and on more than one occasion, to heal from the loss of a friend or family member...(almost always, these 'escape' sessions end up being the best sessions).

Something about being in the water during times like these is very, very humbling. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it feels right. I feel present and in the moment - thankful for the (crazy-beautiful) life I have been given - and that moment makes me realize I am supposed be exactly where I am.

Perhaps Nathan's story is a reminder to all of us that we can still find that humble moment in our lives where we can find peace within our hearts, minds, and souls. Whether it's surfing, playing music, creating art, writing, praying, meditating...whatever. Take time to find that perfect, beautiful moment to just "be here and now" and celebrate this amazing life that was given to us.

Here is a link to what Nathan had to say about this short - which, he says, 'forms the centerpiece' of his feature film, Seaworthy: Stillbirth & Surfing
