A friend shared this over email rcently, and I had to pass along! This is why I love diving… isn’t it gorgeous?!
These were all from a family trip to Belize!
The Sea, biologists tell us, holds the key to the mysteries of life. In some unknown time and way a molecule of matter crossed an unknown line and became a living cell. Other scientists believe that the human mind has a dim awareness of long tenuous roots that stretch back into the sea.
When we dream of being in water, they say, of diving into it or coming out of it, we are reliving the mysteries of our own birth. Our language reflects the uneasy awe we feel towards the unknown world which covers most of the planet. When something is beyond our understanding we say it’s “too deep” or that “we just can’t fathom it!”
