Sad Tidings

Record-breaking surfer phenom dies at the age of 22...

Far too young to die - 

Jay Moriarity; you will never be forgotten.

A lugubrious coincidence that was either a bad omen or a harbinger of things to come...?

The title right above the cover of ''SURFER'' that made young surfer Jay Moriarity an overnight sensation in the surfing community worldwide - it read ''the life and death of...''

Of course, it truly was about someone else - yet another tragedy of the sea - Mark Foo (ask Jeeves about *him*...)

Still, one cannot help but to think that this cover was somehow foreshadowing what the young Jay's destiny was to be...

It was sealed already, from even earlier than that year...

Jay had always loved the sea, from early childhood.

His was a true fascination - one that shaped his life and indeed would fashion his demise as well...

It is extremely sad to think that, at the age of 16, when Jay was on top of the world, riding that most fearful of waves... He had only six more years to live.

But of course, physical death is not the end...

It is but a transition - as we often say on other blogs of ours...

Jay was fascinated with another world: that of the ocean...

He swims now in another world - that of the soul.

While he was of the material world, he was a soul surfer.

Now he truly is one in the fullest sense.

Jay, like Mark Foo and countless others lost at sea, is not dead.

His young widow must know this.

She does - indubitably.
