English: A California surfer. Santa Cruz and the surrounding Northern California coastline is a popular surfing destination; however, the year-round low temperature of the ocean in that region (averaging 57ºF/14ºC) necessitates the use of wetsuits.

However, winter is here.

No surfing for me.

Unless it is across the keyboard you see.

I love the cold snows of winter

I enjoy the beauty of the snow.

But if I had my wishes and dreams come true

I would rather be hanging ten 

Than  Hanging out, hanging in, and hanging on.

So I will count my many blessings

I am safe at last from the storms of life…

I will curl up with a blanket beside the  fire

Hanging out, hanging in, hanging on…….

Hanging out.

Hanging in.

Hanging on.

Three little phrases that make my life strong.

I hang out with the old ones,

the ancient of days,

they teach me the stories,

they show me their ways.

I hang in

as the listener,

the observer,

the friend,

I am there waiting

when your Journey ends.

I hang on to the beauty,

the joys in my day.

Hang on to nature’s love song,

it brightens my way. 

Hanging out.

Hanging in.

Hanging on
