Dr. Jen - Of course I would be happy and priviliedged to speak with your friend who also lost a son to drowning. I like the concept of speaking mom to mom. Just let me know when. Out of curiosity: where is the place you mentioned that you teach learn to swim? In what body of water? As always - I wish you peace & love - Josh's mom.....wanda jean

Hi Dr. Galvin,
What a Blessing, Privilege, and an Honor to have someone with your diverse background, interest, and experiences to join us. I personally look forward to your sharing on our open forum and discussions. I will also purchase We, Sea, as it captures my interest of your research and documentary on the lives of those children and the impact on them, whose environment consists of the ocean. I love the Swim To Empower site, and will be a regular visitor to keep abreast of the "Good Works" you have initiated. Take Care and God Bless You. Darrick..aka dswimmerman

Dr. Galvin,

Watched the trailers on your site, they are awesome. I am working on a few documentaries as well. I would like to talk to you about some different things when you have a chance. Let me know when you are free.

Dr. Galvin,
Welcome aboard! You have an abundance of knowledge and experiences relating to humans and the aquatic environment.
As a SCUBA diver living in South Florida, much of my time
spent underwater is in the Bahamas. I am particularly interested
in the research and documentation of the people in the Bahamas,
their attitudes and superstitions regarding the open sea. Eleuthera, it's clear water and beautiful beaches is one of my
favorite dive destinations. Join our SCUBA group here on the DAP network and share some of your personal experiences beneath the sea, in the course of your travels and research.

So glad to have you as part of our network!
I have a copy of your book “we, sea”, excellent publication and very cool concept! I love what you’re doing in Eleluthera and hope we can talk sometime in the near future. Please give me a call or let me know how I can contact you.
