One Step

One moment on land;

One moment in the air;

...the next moment an explosion of bubbles, pieces of one world being dragged into another, dragged down with the sinking body, obscuring vision until things settle, the silver spheres surge up and away, back to where they belong in another world, and--as one gawps in disbelief for a few moments--the forms of a new world begin to slide, first into position, then into focus.

Respect to all who step into something new.

In the photo, an early 'hard-hat' diver steps off a pier (I've been unable to find the source of this image).
