The image burns into a lasting memory.
You can't wait to tell someone, anyone
you search for words - but find them inadequate.
Years later you still see them leaping all around you, explosions of water...
Hundreds of wild animals that have every reason to fear you -
not fleeing in terror
- instead -
swimming towards you
and with you -
jumping and playing.
You want to be like one of them
and for just a moment -
A gift from above
for those who are willing...
come to the water.
- Captain Dave
