Ok, i am so freakin' excited about giraffesanctuary I can't even think straight. Or I'm hopped up on allergy medicine and caffeine intoxication. Piemancer, don't finish this cup. And take the compost out, while you're at it.

On Saturday, as we were packing up the scubatruck to leave Mukilteo, we heard a scubacommotion in the next parking spot- one of the divers had left half her weights at home. Seventeen pounds. She couldn't dive without it, and her buddy was left high and dry. We're instructors, so we carry tons extra. Ok, only 40 pounds, but you lug that around and see if you don't say tons. 

They were really grateful that we could hook them up with exactly the weight they needed. I felt so happy because sharing $50 worth of weights and trusting that they'd find us the next day to give them back fueled my need for community, connection, and fun. 

Would anyone be willing to celebrate with me by reflecting back what they hear me say?

I hear you saying that you're excited about this community and also possibly affected by stimulants. I'm guessing that you feel delighted and warmed by being able to help another diver by sharing your weights and trusting that she'll return them. I hear that you feel happy because the interaction fed your needs for community, connection, and fun. Is that right?

As someone who doesn't yet speak the dominant language here, i understand you are delighted both in sharing your scuba and giraffe enthusiasm and in creating communities with that enthusiasm. (Can i go beyond reflecting my understanding, to add my experience - that your enthusiasm brings a smile to my face?)
