About "Pearl Diver"

This song has been hobbling around half-written in my psyche for eons, and it took the RPM Challenge to finally finish it!

Like many of my generation, my first peek into the world of women (and what they looked like under their clothes) was National Geographic magazine. I remember an article about the women who dive for pearls in Japan. They harvested them topless (due to custom), even though the water was very cold. I was amazed at the sight of these beautiful, half-naked women plunging into the water, armed with knives. It seemed so gorgeously surreal. It certainly left an imprint on my impressionable mind.
