Tonight not much has happened besides my dive master class getting underway.

Sand in My Soul

I think just about everyone knows that I love the water. Whether it be a river, the lake, or the ocean, they all make me happy and feel at peace. They all offer something special and unique about them. So on this cloudy Friday being spent from my apartment due to a nasty sinus infection and no diving this weekend (not cool), I am going to share some of my favorite quotes about the great thing called water. Here we go.


Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
I am haunted by waters.”  Norman Maclean


“All you really need this time of year is a pair of shades and ice cold beer and a place to
sit somewhere near the water”
— Brad Paisley


“I’m telling you that science has proven that heartaches are healed by the sea.”
Garth Brooks


When these sails go up, mountains fade away. Stars come out, I’m finally free. Now it’s only the ocean and me.” Jack Johnson


You can ride on it or drink it;
Poison it or dam it;
Fish in it and wash in it;
Swim in it and you can die in it….Run, you river, run”  The Band


The sea is the same as it has been since before men ever went on it in boats. Ernest Hemingway


Many a calm river begins as a turbulent waterfall, yet none hurtles and foams all the way to the sea.
Mikhail Lermontov


I’m an old-fashioned guy… I want to be an old man with a beer belly sitting on a porch, looking at a lake or something.
Johnny Depp

Until next time.
