So why am I not SCUBA certified?
I'm afraid to. I never liked wearing a mask. The idea of filling my mask with water and clearing it out again, all without returning to the surface is paralyzing to me.
So when my father-in-law offered to help us get our certification (he knows a guy), of course, I said, "GREAT! AWESOME! SIGN ME UP!!" Actually, it was more like, "I'll give it a try."
Then, as if I needed extra motivation beyond the whole it-would-be-awesome thing, I stumbled upon the work of Jason deCaires Taylor the other day.
I would likely psyche my self out the same way I do when walking around the house in the dark.
Maybe I can overcome more than one fear, because it is now a life goal of mine to see these in person.
