This weekend I will kiteboard. I’ve been putsying around on the beach learning how to fly the humongous kite. Now it’s time to strap on a board and hit the water. I am the most uncoordinated person I know. But sometimes you have to dare to fail. In traveling. At work. In life. So here goes nothing…
