People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies;
Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have and it may just never be enough;
Give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it’s all between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

Monday Morning Wave

Photographer: Ben Margot

A surfer rides a wave churned by a winter storm underneath the south tower of the Golden Gate Bridge Friday, Jan. 4, 2008, in the San Francisco Bay. A fierce arctic storm pounded California on Friday, threatening to soak mudslide-prone canyons already charred by wildfires and to paralyze the mountains with deep snow

Monday Morning Wave

Photographer: Mateus

Monday morning. Monday morning blues. What is life anyway? I feel trapped, alone even with my family, wife, children, friends. I miss something. Monday morning wave. I forgot those days. I will go back to her. She calls, my old friend.
We will reminisce again about the days of old

Objects of Desire

When you're doing something awesome, and we owe it to 'life' to do that from time to time, you want to make sure it's recorded for posterity. This is no problem if you're film the kids playing on the lawn, but it does become more problematical if you're throwing yourself out of a plane at 30,000 feet, surfing a huge wave, hurting down a mountain on skis or a track on a dirt bike. Enter the Action Camera, a tough little no-nonsense digital movie cam that you can attach to a helmet, mast, handlebars, your foot, arm or whatever, record your latest adrenalin rush, and at last post something on YouTube or MySpace that's actually interesting and exciting. Keep your hands free to pull the rip cord, swing from a branch, leap bungeed from a bridge, ride your bike, your horse or the back of a turtle (you never know), and let the Action Cam capture it all.

With an in-built SD card slot, you can boost the existing 32MB of on-board memory up to 2GB. The picture quality is pretty decent too with a 640x480 VGA CMOS sensor, and you can play your footage back on your PC or TV. It's water, dirt, rain, snow and shock proof, and provides cinematic proof that you lived life to the full. Go and get muddy and crazy, and amass some evidence for use in your old age that proves you kicked butt in your well spent youth.
