What is it about the open water that draws us
with such a powerful pull?
In a word:
the open water is alive!
It has texture...
It's nothing like a road!
We ride a bike on a road.
We run on a road.
But we swim IN the water.
It wraps around us...
and reaches up to connect us to the sky
I was swimming in the Triathlon at Lake Pearl
in Wrentham, MA when I saw this swimmer.
Taken by the dazzling spray of water
as it flew from her fingers,
I snapped this photo.
(Yes, I swim with a camera.
Don't want to miss a moment like this!)
for putting on this great race!
