The song La Mar (The Ocean) by the Beautiful Girls has been on my playlist for years. I’m not ashamed to tell you that more than once the song has found me in the right place at the right time, and when it did I may have cried a little.

Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be an official video for it, or if this is it then they’ve chosen to ignore the very heavy and sad parenting angle that occurs later in the song.  It’s full of beauty, coping, love and sound advice. But mostly surfing.
