Irresistible American surf rogue, originally from Hollywood, California; the light-footed master of Malibu during the 1950s and '60s, and surfing's definitive outlaw figure. "Those who knew Miki Dora, "those who wish they had or never had, all agree: there will never be another character in surfing like him. No one. Not even close."

I've been thinking about sunsets lately, not just because I took some #sunset photos, but more about how sunsets can paint a picture of life. There is an end to the day and ultimately an end to life, yet in between our birth and that last sunset there will be endings. The days that are long and hard and filled with sorrow or pain will end. The good days of our youth and our health will end. One day we suddenly cannot run as fast or jump as high, we can't stay out as late or eat as much. As our sunsets hit instead of working circles around others we find ourselves have someone work circles around us, or as I've had to experience because of my health, having someone doing something for you that you know how to do, but no longer can. Yet, with the sunsets in life there are new things. Just as the sun brings a new night, and ultimately a new dawn as things end in life they often bring new opportunities and new promises. Soon my sunset of just being Dad will end and I'll hear, "Grandpa." That newness doesn't take away from the old, but brings with a change and a hope and different joy. I've learned that in the life the days are often very long, but the years are incredibly short! No matter how difficult the days are, the sun will set on them, and just like this photo we can lool back and with hindsight see the good and the beauty even in the hard days. We can see how each sunset of change helped mold us from who we were to who we are today. Enjoy the sunsets, and in the most difficult of days have hope that this will pass one day as the sun sets on our trials and hope that after the night the newness of the dawn will explode forth with goodness, and warmth and purpose . . .
