Odd affiliation with the wet stuff? Ok, I think I’m way too drunk to answer that. See ya tomorrow.

@caitlin yes it does!!!

just something about all forms of water, just really fasinate me, probably has something to do with its abundance on earth! but either swimming, rain, snow, ice, lakes, rivers, sea, mist.

its something i always finds my self being drawn to!

then yes. I love hockey. Ice hockey.
I enjoy swimming and simply being in water as well, but hockey and ice skating in general is something that gives me great joy, whether I do it for 5 minutes or 5 hours. Especially on a pond in winter.
There’s also something very serene and powerful about running water, as in a river. The last time I was in a river I had jumped in while rafting (it was a calm area) and I remember just floating along on my back and it was a very eye-opening experience for me.

water is fantastic. one of my first trips was walking up and down a gorge in Ithaca, NY. I got stuck sitting by the water several times, just watching it flow over rocks and sticks . . . I can stare at a placid lake for a long time, pour any stress or whatever emotion I have into the lake and then I’m like an empty vessel.

and walking along the ocean at night with the waves crashing is another time when my mind is just empty and I’m all experience. all three of those kinds of water make it very easy for me to suspend all thought and simply exist.


Water is fun and pretty.

I learned to swim just a few months ago.
Pretty tough, but one of the best workouts there is. I need to do it more!

Revisiting the place we all started from. It’s pretty refreshing.

Oh hell yes! I am right with you Matt. I have always felt more “at home” in water than on land. When I go camping, I spend most of my time swimming. Hours diving deep in the lake, swimming for the pure joy of swimming.

So beautiful and immense. Makes me feel connected to the earth so much more when I am deep under water. =)

I love water, it kinda makes me go back to the fetal stage sometimes, like I am just free and without a care in the world, floating. water is powerful stuff

I’m obsessed with the ocean! I dream about it all the time since it’s so far away from me now. And also used to wish/still kinda wish I was a mermaid. :)

I always hated swimming up in till 3 years ago. I was actually scared when I was real little. I would always think of the creatures that lurk underwater.

I love swimming it gives your body such a good and fulfilling feeling after a workout. Has anyone here tried cold water swimming? I have heard it is very invigorating and good for you
