The coconut coral and water
Maldivian fisherman’s tale from “Deeply” by Umberto Pelizzari
“…I see a man coming towards me . Walking in a strange way: like all old sailors, moves on land as if it were still on the sea…
It is Brisbe: ” I saw you on the beach today. Congratulations, I love how you go under water. I’m just a old fisherman, but let me give you some advice. Remember that you can go in the water in two ways.”
So he is saying, he pulls out a piece of coral and throws it into the sea; then from a half a coconut is pouring in water the sugary liquid and whitish: “See, coral and coconut are now together in the water. But the coral is the coral, while the coconut milk is now sea: when you go under water no need to do such as coral but as the coconut milk.
When you dive you must not resist the sea, you should not be there, your body, your skin and the sea, but every part of your being must become one with the water”.”
