‘Come home immediately’, one e-mail said. Maybe jokingly, but friendly. I have seen the volcano far away. I have seen the dramatic newspaper headlines, and they don’t match. Yes, people are...

It seems so simple. Take a breath of air and dive as deep as you want into the ocean. But you have to make it back up to the surface, and...
