There isn't a day go by where I don't immerse myself in the lagoon. Sometimes, just a cooling dip; at others times a test of my strength against the current. I follow footpaths through the sea grass, suspended above the narrow highways, and swim the length of the sand patches, as clear and vast as a pool. Thoughts are few; my mind calm with the rhythmic pull and kick, my eyes watching for the occasional glint of fish. I cherish the freedom, the opportunity to preserve the splashing child within, the simple joy of moving forward quietly with my own power.
