‘I’m trying to stay upright on my surf board!’
‘What surf board? you’re just standing there with your tongue poking out of the corner of your mouth’
‘It’s a virtual surf board… a state of mind.’
‘But you can’t surf. You only ride boogie boards!’
‘Hey! This is my imagination… I get to do what I want. And what I want to do is surf!’
‘Whatever! Dare I ask why?’
‘As a matter of fact I am learning to surf the wave of change! It’s got to be better than being tumbled head over heels trying to float on the surface!’
‘That clears it up… not!’
‘There’s so much change going on around me, at work and at home. I’ve decided to go with the flow, but riding on top of it all instead of being swept along. Who knows, if I catch a great wave I can ride it all the way to the shore!’
