As I ventured into my 13th year as a full time PADI Instructor and Course Director, my passion for diving still hasn't wane. Reading the script of Drew Richardson recent address to PADI Members, he described what I do and why I still am doing it very nicely, though with more poetic and eloquent. What drew said below is so true:

"So, what gives diving its staying power? What’s the universal appeal? It’s that diving gives back more than any other activity. It offers unequalled diversity and so many different reasons to do it. Is there any other activity that lets you be a naturalist, explorer, artist, scientist, gear head, educator, mentor, and world traveler — all at the same time? One that lets you thrill or chill … go local or go travel … do it with family and familiar friends … or with brand new faces from the world’s most diverse, interesting and adventure-oriented lifestyle? There isn’t anything else that offers all this. And, even though we come to diving with different interests, it unites us. Diving pulls us together across cultures, politics, generations and boundaries. It gives us a solidarity speaking on behalf of the aquatic world, and it breaks down barriers."
