A Thirst To Spend My Fire and Restless Force Tracking My True, Original Course

But often, in the world's most crowded streets,
But often, in the din of strife,
There rises an unspeakable desire
After the knowledge of our buried life;
A thirst to spend our fire and restless force
In tracking out our true, original course;

- Matthew Arnold
The Buried Life



So, one of the items on my buried list is learning to surf. When we were in Hawaii, I realized that I am less of an adventurous swimmer than I used to be, and I don't know if I will ever really be able to learn to surf, given my relative fear of animals lurking beneath me and stuff like that.

But, I just found out about something that may work for me someday. At Disney World, you can take surfing lessons in the morning at the water park before it opens. This sounds perfect for me!  No creatures. Perfect waves. Instructors. Controlled environment. And who knows... if I can learn to surf in an environment when I am not terrified, then maybe I could actually surf in the ocean here in Cali.

It is certainly worth a shot. I think it will be part of the planning of our next Disneyworld vacation.
