deep sea diving

prompted by another blog post – a number of people seem to be submerged in the murky depths of bleak thought pools – I thought this might be a floatie:

a surfer once explained to me what you do when a huge wave comes rolling at you: you dive underneath it, stay down while it lasts and hold your breath, even if you think your lungs might burst; and it’s cold and kind of scary, but you know you’ll come up again. and then you resurface behind the wave and you find you’re ok.

that seems very true

so if something untoward comes rolling towards you, take your head down, bop up and enjoy the surf again. trying to keep that in mind helps, I find.
