Sample text

Nils had his scuba-diving certificate, so, when we got there, he did his scuba thing while I snorkelled with the other tourists. This was enough to get my attention; within a month, I had my own scuba-diving, advanced and underwater photography certificates. I loved the reef and all the animals and fishes that live there. I was really overwhelmed that I was able to swim with the fishes, that I could touch a moray eel, which is actually quite timid, and that I was able to dive with two very large whales.

I recognize those things that make an individual unique, and, if this helps me to be a better person, then I try to make these characteristics my own; I am a person who is always looking for a way to improve myself, my life, and, at the same time, my art. 21 The Bravest of Us All.... 1993 Acrylic on canvas 36" ∞ 48" (poem and painting are dedicated to my brother) (personal collection) 22 The Bravest of Us All.... And never again shall his laughter be heard, Or his humour which caused such levity, Or the warmth and concern from every word Of his gregarious and uninhibited integrity.

Afterwards, I went to the notorious King’s Cross area and explored its wonders of street cafes and dingy bars. I became very aware of my personal space, and I made sure that I kept a very close eye on anyone invading it. In many ways, all the talk about this place was wasted; it was not really as bad as its reputation. For the rest of my journey, this was pretty much the system I used. Look at all the tourist sites, find a good place to sleep, a good place to eat, and then a good place to drink.
