Cuttlefish are one of my favorite underwater critters. When we were diving in Papua New Guinea, I had a mishap with a Scopolamine patch, leading to dilated pupils for 12 hours! Yep, imagine that sensitivity you get after an eye exam and then think about it lasting all day. Not good-especially in the middle of the tropics. Sadly, this meant I couldn't read my gauges (unless I could have found a way to develop go-go gadget arms and hold them two feet away from me.) ____ Although I couldn't dive, Jason opted to go. After the dive, I asked him how it was and he gave me his usual shrug and said "it was ok." Well, other divers were about to bust his game wide open. They climbed aboard hooting and hollering about that being one of the best dives ever! ____ Swiveling my head back to Jason, I asked him if he had missed what they were talking about. Nope, he'd seen and photographed the mating cuttlefish, crazily displaying and changing colors. Admitting this was one of the coolest things he had ever seen, he wanted to save me the disappointment since I was stuck onboard. Now, that's a great husband! ___ Keeping with my week of gratitude, this close-up shot of a cuttlefish eye speaks to being "seen." I am so fortunate to have people in my life that see me and have provided so much support throughout this Epic 7 Travel launch journey. The biggest thank you goes to my husband, Jason, who encouraged me to resign from my medical device marketing career to chase this dream related to travel photography, writing and conservation. Major kudos to my in-laws, Neiko and Dave, who have been my steadfast editors, catching details I've missed with their eagle eyes. And, a huge shout out to Kavita and Allie, who have provided creative suggestions and feedback for developing the Epic 7 Travel brand during monthly brainstorming calls for our respective businesses.
