Let’s go for a swim

Do you know how swimming feels like? Not if you’re an experienced swimmer. Nor when it is your first time. But when you’ve just learnt enough to be able to venture on your own but can only go a little distance before you lose it.

That feeling.

I want to feel that way in life. The joy of being in control for just a little bit but not too much. The joy of gliding in the water. Sure but unsure. Excited but scared. Immersed in water looking at the big blue bright sky. Hope and tentativeness equal parts. Wonder and joy of learning a new way of life almost. Wanting to go fast but tiring out. Fading friction. Facluties almost acting new to balance and manuover. The rest of the world forgotten. Only if for a bit.

How would living life like that feel?
