well here it is. my direction in life turned out to be down. under the sea that is, where i feel free. i am three weeks into my dive master trainneship and with out deciding to start and actually commit myself to do it, i would have been lost.
my wife emily was the one who conviced me to give it a go, in her words 'just do it phil' she said, 'you love the water and i want you to follow your dreams so go ahead and make them come true'. with some persuasion from gabriel my instructor i decided to jump at it and take the chance.
previous to this both emily and i had no idea what we were going to do for ourselves and our future. the best part of all is that now we have some direction and the future is not so hazy, we have decided to move to cairns so emily can continue uni and i can continue my new diving career path. we cant wait!
the diving on the south coast (merimbula) has been amazing, one of my high lights was the first wreck penetration on the tasman hauler. as i entered the wreck i had a feeling of relief, like all my worries were gone, its a hard thing to describe and few things can make me feel this way apart from the ocean and surfing. it was like the ultimate freedom, i felt like i was where i belonged. anyway more later....im late too drop some videos back haha, more fines.
