Ask me anything
Awww poor baby
you’re doing it wrong
Free diving with humpback whales.
I used to work for a boat that did guided trips to swim with the hump back whales in the silver banks, just north of the Dominican Republic. Normally you can’t dive down on them. They will split. You can just float in the water above them. These guys were super chill and didn’t mind. Plus it was just me and the photographer in the water while the guests were having lunch, so I could get away with diving. The photographer kept wanting me to get closer, for his shot, but those are damn big animals. The mother whale was full frame in my mask and the baby was coming at me so that’s as close as I got.
“ As Pico Iyer pointed out, the act of quitting “means not giving up, but moving on, changing direction not because something doesn’t agree with you, but because you don’t agree with something. It’s not a complaint, in other words, but a positive choice, and not a stop in one’s journey, but a step in a better direction. Quitting - whether a job or a habit - means taking a turn so as to be sure you’re still moving in the direction of your dreams.” ”

“ When you grow up you, tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again. ”
I know people, and you know right away when you meet them, they have a fire in their hearts, in their souls, and it’s a consuming force; it’ll burn them up from the inside until they have the courage to live the lives they dream of.
