About the Book
'Light in the Water' has been a work in progress, at least in my mind, for many, many years. I am pleased that it is finally in tangible form and hope that it is and will be enjoyed by everyone for years to come.
I struggled with the title probably more so than necessary, finally selecting it one early evening sipping an adult beverage with Barbara on a lanai in Hawaii. It can offer a variety of interpretations... including portraying access to the incredible beauty of our underwater world that opens to a diver carrying a light or to a photographer using a strobe. Then there is the metaphysical thought that the 'light' in the water can be a metaphor for 'life'. Either way I sincerely hope you have as much fun browsing through 'Light in the Water ' as I had creating and producing it.
