Swimming in a water hole

Swimming: An Artful Escape

That moment when you glide smoothly into the water;
it’s like you’re transporting yourself to another world.
Swimming; it’s so therapeutic.

Without regular trips to the gym and a daily commute, my mobility has lessened.
I do take walks and go for jogs, but that only makes up for a portion of
what I’ve lost.
I’ve been fortunate enough to visit the beach quite frequently this summer.

Swimming has been a peaceful, intuitive way to connect with earth, the divine,
and even my own body.
I feel my back loosen up as I entrust it to the ocean;
I let my legs and arms move with the currents.
I float and tread the water; I stare off into the abyss of blue water and sky.
I watch clouds in the distance.

Fluid movements in the cocoon of water,
Open natural water can truly act as the body’s medicine.

    Sounds calming just reading about it. I’m actually considering taking up swimming again after this pandemic blows over.
