Lotusland

“We landed in the country of the Lotus-Eaters, who live on a flowering food… My men went on and presently met the Lotus-Eaters, nor did these Lotus-Eaters have any thought of destroying our companions, but they only gave them lotus to taste of. But any of them who ate the honey-sweet fruit of lotus was unwilling to take any message back, or to go away, but they wanted to stay there with the lotus-eating people, feeding on lotus, and forget the way home.
I myself took these men back weeping, by force, to where the ships were, and put them aboard under the rowing benches and tied them fast, then gave the order to the rest of my eager companions to embark on the ships in haste, for fear someone else might taste of the lotus and forget the way home…”
The Odyssey
I surfed yesterday morning. Just a couple hours in a glassy point break at Ledbetter Beach, 2 -3 footers that lasted forever, warm water and nobody else in the line-up. I am going back right now.
