drowning doesn’t look like drowning

just a friendly reminder as the weather starts to warm up and more people spend time on or near the water: drowning doesn’t look like drowning.

  • Drowning is not the violent, splashing, call for help that most people expect.
  • Drowning is almost always a deceptively quiet event.
  • Drowning people cannot wave for help. Nature instinctively forces them to extend their arms laterally and press down on the water’s surface. Pressing down on the surface of the water, permits drowning people to leverage their bodies so they can lift their mouths out of the water to breathe.

this is a blank post

 

I’m doing the work

I’m not a slacker!

has the increase in instantaneous, short snippets of information, ready to be instantly accessed via various forms of social media caused a decrease in blogging?

is it easier to post something or “like” it on Facebook?

have Instagram, Pinterest, and Tumblr taken over as the place to look for sailing/nautical images and then some?

have Twitter, Snapchat, or the latest social media craze sapped away all of our fleeting attention spans?

 

what if there is no tomorrow?

happy Groundhog’s Day!

 

an average sailor?
