I was listing to O.A.R. today at my work computer when "Home" came on, one of their best songs. I haven't listened to them in years, mostly when I was in my late teens. I was surfing every day, often between classes. Just me, my music, surfboard, and truck. 'Home" came on and I was instantly brought back to Morro Rock, playing that track while I put my wetsuit on before making the swim out to South Jetty. The breeze, the sun, the salty air. Freedom. I savored that bittersweet moment for a minute, then returned to the work in front of me.
