They are the ever-enlarging circles of intelligence in action; they are the sonorous waves of thought.
The first thing I do every morning is go online to check the surf. If the waves are good, I’ll go surf. The beach is 10 minutes away.
It is seen that both matter and radiation possess a remarkable duality of character, as they sometimes exhibit the properties of waves, at other times those of particles.

One thing I’m super aware of in my music when I’m writing is: ‘Am I overcomplicating this?’ I’ll write a song about some deep existential quandary and explore all these dumb thought waves, and then think ‘Is it effective to say that? Or is it effective to say one simple thing that communicates the feeling better?’

Like as the waves make towards the pebbl’d shore, so do our minutes, hasten to their end.

My tears will keep no channel, know no laws to guide their streams, but like the waves, their cause, run with disturbance till they swallow me as a description of his misery.

We would be doing the children of South Asia a great disservice if we allowed ourselves to believe that the need of children to belong to a loving, permanent family was washed away by the waves of the tsunami.
