Happy New Year!

We begin this new year with a very special photo taken on New Years Day 2012 off Waikiki showing a pod of dolphins. Photo above courtesy of LACo Recurrent, Jeff McConnel.

Additionally, how about the following shot from So. Section on New Years Day!?... by none other than veteran LACo Recurrent/Surf Guru, Kip Jerger?!...

We thought we would also pass along a great parable forwarded to us recently by veteran LACo Recurrent, John "Matty" Matesich, as follows:

From: John Matesich
Subject: Two wolves ..... as told by the old Cherokee
Date: December 31, 2011

"This is probably the best I've ever heard life explained!"


One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, "My son, the battle is between two wolves inside us all.

"One is Evil - It is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego."

"The other is Good - It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:

"Which wolf wins?"

The old Cherokee simply replied,

"The one you feed."


Thanks Matty! 10-4.
