April 2012. This guy showed up on my deep dive at Chumphon Pinnacle off Ko Tao, Thailand. Scuba diving can be a fickle bitch when it comes to sighting the big guns but if you are lucky enough to catch a whale shark it’s more than worth it.
The world is like a ride in an amusement park and when you choose to go on it you think it’s real because that’s how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and around and around and it has thrills and chills and it’s very brightly coloured and it’s very loud. And it’s fun - for a while. Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question; is this real? Or is this just a ride? And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, and they say, “Hey, don’t worry, don’t be afraid, ever, because… this is just a ride.
