It takes years to perfect a swan dive like Solomon.
First, you work on your own dive.
You dive in and plug your nose and get wet.
Then, you towel off and then months later you try diving in head first.
Next, you try it again and again without making a splash.
After that you practice your somersaults and flips and swan dives.
Then, you fine tune it and keep your legs together and toes pointed.
And then finally when you have mastered diving head first off rocky cliffs in Belize, Havana, Okinawa and all the cliffs in the world, you meet another diver.
You decide to dive in sync together.
You count down together, you bounce off the board together, and you two fly like no one is watching. And you don’t even make a splash.
