What if I told you that I am unable to swim even if it was at the shallow end of the swimming pool? No not anymore.
The whole love and enthusiasm for swimming died off after I watched someone die in the pool. It happened some years ago at a hotel pool. The young man jumped into the swimming pool headlong and hit his head. Oh, Lawd! It was a sad day and that ugly incident sapped all my energy and passion for swimming.
Nonetheless, I love the art. I enjoy watching people as they claw and stroke the waters. Now, I get my swimming satisfaction just watching swimming competitions. I enjoy how swimmers cruise along the lanes on top speed aiming for the competition medals. You know those swimmers that possess great skills and move with robotic precision as they stroke and stroke until they get to the finished line. Yeah, those ones dazzle me with their fluidity in the waters.
Swimming is therapeutic I agree, but I am yet to muster enough courage to jump into the pool again, not even to get into the shallow surfaces.
