how does everyone feel about swimming!!!!
i love swimming! probably more comfortable and able in water than on land
anyone else have an odd affiliation with the wet stuff???
@Caitlin yes it does!!!
just something about all forms of water, just really fasinate me, probably has something to do with its abundance on earth! but either swimming, rain, snow, ice, lakes, rivers, sea, mist.
its something i always finds my self being drawn to!
then yes. I love hockey. Ice hockey.
I enjoy swimming and simply being in water as well, but hockey and ice skating in general is something that gives me great joy, whether I do it for 5 minutes or 5 hours. Especially on a pond in winter.
There’s also something very serene and powerful about running water, as in a river. The last time I was in a river I had jumped in while rafting (it was a calm area) and I remember just floating along on my back and it was a very eye-opening experience for me.
water is fantastic. one of my first trips was walking up and down a gorge in Ithaca, NY. I got stuck sitting by the water several times, just watching it flow over rocks and sticks . . . I can stare at a placid lake for a long time, pour any stress or whatever emotion I have into the lake and then I’m like an empty vessel.
and walking along the ocean at night with the waves crashing is another time when my mind is just empty and I’m all experience. all three of those kinds of water make it very easy for me to suspend all thought and simply exist.
@daveb yeahhhh i dig that!!! just the sound and the flow, and the power, esppecially when you look at landscapes formed by it! glaciers in mountains making massive valleys, huge salt flats from ancient seas,
we are all water children! :)
@James, well done mate! as a swimming teacher i know learning to swim when you are not a kid is incredibly difficult!
@shanice! you should deffinitly learn! its amazing!!!!!
Oh hell yes! I am right with you Matt. I have always felt more “at home” in water than on land. When I go camping, I spend most of my time swimming. Hours diving deep in the lake, swimming for the pure joy of swimming.
So beautiful and immense. Makes me feel connected to the earth so much more when I am deep under water. =)
