Some folks take boats for fun. They could never be serious about boating. They never take care with any boat they might use or borrow.
Some people enjoy cruise ships. Big hotels on water. They feel like they’re on land when they’re not. Similar people like looking through the glass bottom of a glass-bottom boat. They can see underwater, when they’re not.
Many people are content to stay on top of the water. They see only the surface, light reflecting, waves pounding the shore. Some can see just below the surface. Their eyes follow the light a few feet below. Some can snorkel deep enough to see the colors and colorful fish that live in the water below the boat.
Few want to go deep, deep down, deep in the ocean to know their own soul.
