i don’t know why it’s taken me so long to realize that swimming is the key to my existence. i might be a terrible swimmer (and it’s humbling to be swimming alongside 100 year old men and women who are swimming laps around me quite effortlessly, but maybe that’s the point.) Yet somehow i just feel exponentially more bold and alive after a swim than i ever could anticipate. so i really don’t mind being a the worst swimmer on this planet, especially if it frees me up to live up to my potential as an inhabitant of this planet.
and now i can see why Iggy Pop is so into it.
