Why I love to Swim

I enter the water, feel the change in temperature and dunk inside. Then I swim, propelling forward as I exert my body in this amazing medium that is water. Swimming is a way to summon my attention. Attention which is constantly stolen by the internet, by phones, by people. Swimming is a way to clear clutter from the mind. A garbage collector for the mind.

Each breath utilized to move forward. Each action taken with the purpose of  floatation or movement.  Swimming is meditation. Swimming  is a reminder of life with each breath. Swimming is a reminder of death with each dive. Swimming is about living in the present and being in the moment.A good swim is energizing. That is why I love to swim.
