Also the ocean is so beautiful and unforgettable. The sounds of the waves coming from the massive deep blue ocean and washing up on the shore of the white sand beach, or the sound of them crashing up against the sharp jagged rocks of the coast line are soothing. Something about the rhythmic timing of each wave causes a relaxing sensation and can almost put you into a deep sleep. The sleep would be hard to come out, not because it’s impossible but only because you wouldn’t want to. Although some individuals may find them extremely annoying I enjoy the sound of the sea gulls on the beach.
They also would know what to expect from the way he describes this thrill ride if someone who read it has never windsurfed before. His tone is more of passionate, and as if he were explaining a favorite hobby that he enjoys doing. He even uses a technique Carmen figura to give the poem a sense of surfing out and into the shore. From the first line he can have you visualize a first person view as to what it looks like while riding. “It rides upon the wrinkled hide of water, like an upturned hull of a small canoe or kayak.” (1-3) He even throws in some images referring to how it moves “Then a puffed up right angle of wind pushes it forward, out into the bay, where suddenly it glitters into speed,” (9-11) “Glitters” is a good choice word for speed!
I would find any excuse to go swimming. I enjoyed swimming because I would get great exercise, it is great , and because it gave me stress relief. When I swam the exercise was excellent and it made me feel good. I loved that I got full body workout while I enjoyed the feeling of being in the water anyway. When I am in the water I feel so light and powerful, like I can do anything in the water.
In Malibu, California, surfing was seen as glamorous by Hollywood celebrities. The postwar boom in wealth, mobility, and leisure time brought people to the beaches in droves, many of them to surf. Even in Hermosa Beach and the rest of Southern California, surfing was getting picked up little by little by young men. Tiny organizations called surf clubs began forming in Santa Cruz, Malibu, and Australia. These clubs banded surfers together and are seen as the first step in creating the surfing lifestyle.
The longer I live, the more challenges and pressure I have to face in life. Sometimes I feel like I cannot breathe the air and want to find a refuge to hide in. A refuge, for me, is like a hidden safety harbor for a lonely, directionless and scratched boat at sea. In this particular region, I can enjoy the unfettered release of my negative feelings and relieve stress, without fear of being disturbed. Where is this fresh and comfortable place in San Diego?
Getting to go on this mission’s trip with my father impacted my life because I was able to help people in need and I enjoy helping people now that I am older. I was also impacted by the ocean and nature, learning that I love science. I thought it was amazing to see the joy these people had, all because, they had never met people whom had such genuine care and concern for them. The hardest part of the mission’s trip, for me, was saying goodbye to the beautiful clear
To realize a sense of belonging, the human spirit must embrace and understand the experience of disconnection. The protagonist in Alex Garland’s The Beach felt fondness and communion with the secret beach. “It was the beach and the World… My beach, where you could walk into any conversation at any time between anybody, and the World, where you couldn’t.” The juxtaposition of Richard’s experience on the beach and his experience on the tourist inhabited Kho Phan Ngan elevates his fondness for his beach. By contrasting feelings of disgust in Kho Phan Ngan with perfection and likeness with the beach it is clear that in order to achieve a complete sense of connection with an external idea, place, person or concept, then an understanding of how oneself reacts to feelings of displacement is necessary. To understand how one befits and occasion, idea or place, one must also fathom how self identity applies to the concept of belonging.
Just being in a quiet are, trying to “stretch it all out” and get rid of all the stress I have felt great. It was a great technique that was very relaxing, and especially easy. When I really just want to take out my anger or be alone, long boarding is the best medicine. Instead of getting mad at my parents or wanting to punch something, going for a joy ride feels amazing. It helps me stay fit and helps release the anger.
Soon, I can concentrate on my arms and my legs, however, things began to feel “ right” and I was able to swim! I t was a wonderful feeling! Learning to swim was not easy for me. Not only did I learn how to swim and to conquer my fear of the water, but I also learned something about learning. It is a wonderful, free feeling when I achieve my goal that I set for
