Swimming Again

it was my first exercise after an almost 3-week hiatus from yoga.

swimming, i swam from 750 to 850 am.

i swam like 30 laps. 10 breastroke. then 10 laps of alternating breast stroke and freestyle. then another 10 laps of the same.

i remember Sir Mar and his meditation on water while freestyling. i so understand this now. the effortless swim. the glide. the smile in every stroke. i nearly closed my eyes. but i was still afraid.

but i went swimming. i swam this morning.
