SYNCHRONICITY #110 – BETWEEN TWO WORLDS WITH DR. MICHAEL DAINE
Maybe I should start paddling now?-)
Who knows, but I'll/we'll soon find out I guess?-)
Surfs up and it's time to synch or swim I feel.
And on the subject of surfing and beyond the great wave I just saw this tragic story of an ex-soccer player struck and killed by lightning while learning to surf.
Ex-Belgium right-back Denis Dasoul dies after being struck by lightning while surfing
"Denis Dasoul had retired in 2011 and moved to Melbourne in Australia with his girlfriend Pellaers Allison.
According to the Mirror, the former Belgium youth captain was on holiday with Allison last week to learn how to surf, but was tragically struck by lightning while out in the water at the Batu Bolong beach in Canggu with his instructor.
Dasoul and the instructor were rushed to hospital within half an hour, but police spokesman Johannes H Widya confirmed they "died on the spot".
"They were finishing their session and sitting up on their boards. Both men fell off their boards and sank into the water," an eyewitness said."

Sometimes Life Feels Like Nothing But a Sinking S#it Pit
and that above shot of the lightning hitting the water was the stretch of coastline I nearly drowned in, so seeing and hearing about surfers getting hit by lightning is just one more reason that someone like me should stay out of the water.
I also notice Denis was struck right after I had written about Chris Hemsworth doing a hike on a mountain where an American tourist was hit and killed by lightning -
Go Take Another Hike Hemsworth!-)
And reading stories like the one below reinforce my resolve not to go back into a hungry ocean full of sharks, rips...and now lightning strikes, as well.
A picture you can't un-see
But there are a few reasons to tempt fate I guess, like this story below.

But then knowing my kind of luck I'd probably end up getting swallowed by a whale...and a white one at that;-)
