The Peace of Wild Things by Wendell Berry - On Being | On Being
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

In-Depth: Seven Dive Watch Myths Deep-Sixed
All these purposes aside, to wear a dive watch diving is to celebrate the heritage of this most purpose-built timepiece ever devised. Wearing a dive watch ties you to the lineage of great watches in history and the explorers and adventurers who’ve worn them before. It also is a nice keeper of memories to which you can refer when you’re back at your desk. That scratch on the clasp? From a penetration dive on the Thistlegorm wreck. The scuff on the crystal? A brush on some coral while lionfish hunting in Curaçao. A dive watch is a tangible celebration of our adventurous spirit and an encouragement to go out and do cool stuff. And that may be the best reason of all.
