Fish?!

Quite unexpectedly, swimming is evolving into a full blown meditation that is opening exciting doors. Today, in our backyard tiny pool, I had an amazing experience ... of totally letting go, relaxing, and floating, to the extent that for a few short minutes I experienced being a fish ...

Well, the exhaustion from two hours of tennis and a bottle of beer was not inconsequential either :)))
