Diving. . . is an active physical form of meditation. It is so silent- You're like a thought.

SOME PEOPLE ARE LIKE SLINKIES. NOT REALLY GOOD FOR
ANYTHING, BUT THEY BRING A SMILE TO YOUR FACE WHEN PUSHED DOWN THE
STAIRS.

I've definitely added this to the list of places I'd like to dive one day (word of advice Nailer, the list isn't finite, so you can add places without subtracting others). :smt064


Ahem....I seem to recall someone being invited...and then NOT COMING! Who could THAT have been? :smt064
