Before Armaid - Diving Story #2

Before Armaid - Diving Story #2

One mid-afternoon in my third week of offshore life aboard the ship, the deck and air was at its tropical hottest and I was ready to take a dip into the clear, warm waters of the Philippine Sea.  But instead of just swimming along the surface, I decided to strap on a SCUBA tank and go a little deeper. I decided, in fact, to go all the way down to the bottom.

On the smaller end of the physical scale is the Manuka tree, bush. It’s a shrub that can grow quickly from several inches tall to about 15 feet and under the right conditions it can grow into a slender tree of 30 feet or more.

Before Armaid - Diving Story #1

I was half way through my 10 year commercial diving career when I got a call to do some deep construction and maintenance work in offshore Malaysia on some oil platforms.  The job was to install pipeline connections to the platform and also cut off some steel vertical pipe that was 48 inches in diameter and had a wall thickness of 2 inches.

Kauri only grows in one place in the world, the North Island of New Zealand and is among the most massive in height and girth, nearly as large and as tall as the Redwoods of Northern California.

Peace on Earth

Peace on Earth

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s life.”

Self-Care is Essential for all Massage Therapists

Self-Care is Essential for all Massage Therapists

That’s the professional downside of being a hands-on therapist and also the irony…your own muscles get tight while you provide relief to your client’s tight muscles.
