Deep In Me

Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science And What The Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves, by James Nestor At first it was difficult for me to share the astonishment and shock James Nestor expresses upon his initialisation to the world of freediving.

Tommi's Dive Log

I'm a reef diver. They say reef divers are wussies. I'm also worst-writer. We know what matters more, eh worst-reader? Yet the waters are murky either way. Or are the waters full of spawn?

On Key West

26 10 04 - Moleskine notebook. Days Pass again. But I have seen another end to pieces I've created as though Keylime were the motivating factor. Still, between the tourists like myself I feel no force that joins us unless content is a new force of nature. Can you believe, faithful black book, that I'm … Continue reading On Key West
