"I’m moving gently forward over the wild and beautiful unexplored world below me. I am floating in silence and breaking it up with the sound of my breath.
Above me there is nothing but shimmery light; the place where I come from and will go back to when I am done here.
I am diving. I am a SCUBA diver. I’m going deeper past the wrinkled rocks and dark seaweed toward a deep blueness where a school of silver fish wait. As I swim through the water, bubbles burst from me, wobbling as little jellyfish as they rise.
I check my air.
I don’t have as much time as I need to see everything
…but that is what makes it so special.”
