"Paddlin' Buds"

 Everyone has them. They are sometimes sparks that unite to form a flame. They seem to fade in and out of summer excursions. They come together in sharing a common bond...a common passion. They don't necessarily hang all the time but when they do the excitement is palpable. The anticipation sometimes is intense. The planning is essential. The timing is everything. The sharing of laughter and stories is a given. The introduction of a new piece of gear certainly possible. Learning of a new skill is hopeful as well is the sharing of one gladly given. Scouting of ones put-in a must. Helping with pre and post launch a for sure. A whisper of encouragement most times subtle. A compliment on technique grateful knowing hard work has paid. Readying for a roll probable knowing help is near by. Taking advice when it is offered. Being humbled by more skilled...always! Being part of something bigger than ones self.......PRICELESS!
