when you scuba the atmosphere of the ocean depths compresses your body (squeezing out whatever space it can find making you as compact as can be) and your tissue absorbs nitrogen in accordance with that surrounding pressure

the nitrogen may come out of solution and form bubbles (the bends) in your vessels if the change in pressure is too much for your breath to release all at once

it is very important that you come up slowly and hover just below the surface for a safety stop to give your body the time it needs to off-gas all that it has inhaled and to exhale all the waste that the body produces

i have been decompressing from many dives(within the Word within myself along with friends who are diving too) hovering just below the surface to process

the bits and pieces to follow are some of what has surfaced with me
