Sasamat Swim

This represents the feeling of being beneath the water.  In the summer of 2009 there was a major hot spell, setting temperature records in my area.  I found myself swimming regularly at a local lake.  I’d dive in and then look to the surface, I would think if I don’t get up fast enough, will I drown?  The same can applied to the burdens of life,  could I let go of the things that weigh me down so I can get to the surface.  However, amidst the panic there did exist a sense of calm, serenity and solitude.  As the imagery reflects the view from below looking up, I constantly ask myself am I rising or falling?  Its a day by day experience.
