Ready to greet opportunity

You are standing hip-deep in the ocean with your feet spread wide to stabilize you. Still you must shift your weight and move from side to side and back to front in order not to be swept away by the constant ebb and flow. You prepare your net and toss it outward as you have thousands of times before.

Your location rewarded you on days past – it is the only variable that may be reconsidered on this day. You imagine the catch. You see the catch in your mind's eye. You think about who you will share your bounty with.... And you toss again and again and again until you are swaying and dancing and tossing and gathering in one perfect sweeping motion.

The sea rewards those who are prepared and lucid in the moment.
