It is pure joy to watch the emotionally powerful and extraordinarily moving interactions between diver Ben Burville and his diving buddies. What a wonderful celebration of life and human/animal connection as a wild grey seal holds a diver’s hand!

At the same time, it is a sad reminder that these once simple everyday interactions between humans — ritual greetings between friends… casual display of physical intimacy… heartwarming gesture of trust, care, and compassion — have become anything but in our Covid-19 world.

Hang in there everyone.
