night swimming

night-sky

Night swimming is one of my great summer loves.

This past week the temperatures have started to rise and the nights are hot. Before heading to bed I plunge naked into the unlit pool and float. Float surveying the night sky – star gazing.
Peace. Freedom. Beauty. Awe. Imperturbable.

I go to sleep most nights with REM’s song swimming around in my mind. I like it.

  1. As soon as I saw the title of this post I thought of REMs song - lovely. That's going to be in my head all day (not a bad thing)!

  2. So jealous, what a fantastic way to end the day! REM have such great lyrics and titles for pinching. When I used the line “side by side in orbit around the fairest sun”, I had the song in my head for weeks!
