I found my way home tonight. Submerged, cloaked in stillness with chlorine stinging my eyes.
I've been eyeing the pool at the gym for a couple of weeks now and decided to spice up my workout tonight by taking the plunge (ha). It was like being reunited with an old friend I hadn't seen in years. The fact of the matter is that it really has been years since I've hopped in the pool and swam laps. I used to live at the pool...at least until I hit that sensitive age where I suddenly became aware enough of my body to become self conscious.
Well, tonight I pulled on a simple one piece and a pair of black swim shorts and was a happy fish swimming lap after lap after lap.
