There is something special about tossing a line in the water, kicking your feet back, blasting the radio to your favorite tunes, and leaving all of your worries behind. It is an indescribable feeling. Come summer time, that is exactly what I look forward to the most: living easy, living simply, living in the moment with a fishing pole in my hand.
