About You, "The Person"...
Favorite place to dive:
Thus far, Cozumel is my favorite dive destination.
Most memorable dive experience:
One of my most memorable dive experiences was diving with dolphins in the Bahamas.
SCUBA diving is sensual. To breathe underwater is one of the most fascinating and peculiar sensations imaginable. Breathing becomes a rhythmic melody of inhalations and exhalations. The cracks and pops of fish and crustaceans harmonize with the rhythmic chiming of the bubbles as you exhale. Soon, lungs act as bellows, controlling your buoyancy as you achieve weightlessness. And, as in your dreams, you are flying. Combine these otherworldly stimuli and you surrender completely to the sanctuary of the underwater world. --Tec Clark, forward, Karen Berger’s Scuba Diving
