- I'm neither a misanthrope nor extremely solipsistic, but many of the finest moments I've experienced in this life came while communing solo with the natural world. I've had the pleasure of hiking in pristine wilderness areas, diving on coral reefs and surfing quality waves, alone.
As a former diving instructor, I dutifully encouraged my students to follow the "buddy system." It is the smart thing to do.
Yet I violated it every chance I got, fully understanding the risks involved.
Guilty, as charged.
Still, I have no regrets. I bailed on religion a long time ago, guess when started working on this webpage, but I've never lost my childhood love of the intensely pleasurable experience of being a sentient being seemingly alone in this magnificent Eden.
And of all those solitary pleasures, the best, by far, has been paddling out alone before sunrise into a Pacific winter swell, with the cool offshore winds carrying the clean scent of the back country down the canyons and into the lineup.
It may not be "religious," but it's as close as I'm likely to get.
