Keep holding your breath….you’re almost there…
And in a split second your head breaks through the surface of the water. You gulp for air and yet feel refreshed by these tepid calm waters. The sun’s warm rays heat your face.
This is more than refreshing…it’s cleansing. Somehow underneath those waves the dirt and decay of everyday worries sloughed off. Somehow thoughts of planning and “must do” melted away. Somehow in these warm waters you found it…..true freedom.
And as you float you wonder…”can anyone ever be more alive than this?”
