It is so redemptive for me. I always said there were only two physical things that I was coordinated enough to do well: swimming and sex. Primitive things. I am a water lizard. I dance to the heart rhythm. Ocean water was once our blood, you know.

Skimming, suspended, I leave the rest behind. Fast, fast, yes, I wish I could run like this. I blow bubbles of laughter, and hear them break on the surface, echoing.
