I am this close 👌🏼 from giving up my scuba. I still need to practice. A lot.
But in any event, it was a great birthday celebration!! Well, at least I could spare the guilt of spending so much money on pleasing other people by throwing a party that I clearly wouldn’t enjoy 🙄
P.S: that’s not me. I photographed this. #freediving#wreckdiving
I was never idle long enough to do much thinking, but I felt somehow that my instincts were right. I shared a vagrant optimism that some of us were making real progress, that we had taken an honest road, and that the best of us would inevitably make it over the top.
I shared a dark suspicion that the life we were leading was a lost cause, that we were all actors, kidding ourselves along on a senseless journey. It was the tension between these two poles--a restless idealism on one hand and a sense of impending doom on the other--that kept me going. - The Rum Diary.
