Nunc Dimittis

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace according to thy word.For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,which thou hast prepared before the face of all people.

Jeremy, James and I go to Aka shima for 3 days of diving.

I will not be able to capture the rapture. I have never had 3 days of such repeated astonishment. The underwater seas around Aka are about 3 divisions above the seas around Okinawa,which themselves are in the first division. This means we have to invent new language. Aka underwater is in the flam flim, the shnurt grunt, the rang tang, the whee whee, the click clack, the spoon wheel, division.

Masa san is our guide

The weather is ideal. The water is so clear that you could make contact lenses from it. We dive in T shirts and shorts.

There is the ambient Okinawan miasma of happiness and joy.

I cannot film underwater. I do not know what to do. This not any thing like what it is like, like.

The real colors are brilliant and startling. Watch the video with the highest possible resolution.

Like Simeon, I am now ready to die. What more is there to see?
