#AliveLiving: Surfer

#AliveLiving: Surfer
I skim the water surface, yet I reach for the skies.
I champion whatever the ocean can muster against me.
The beach is my finish-line, and I beat the waves to it, every time.
I am a surfer, and this is my ‪#AliveLiving‬.

#AliveLiving: Skydivers

#AliveLiving: Skydivers
As we spend our lives climbing the ladder, they free-fall from 15000 feet.
When we open the windows for some wind, they travel 200 km/hr in the air.
While we yearn for a break in our lives, they simply pull open their parachute.

#AliveLiving: Apa Sherpa
As we limit ourselves to climbing stairs, he conquers the greatest peak there is.

He is Apa ‘Super’ Sherpa, and this is his #AliveLiving.
