Waters deep, cold and dark, Swimming in the middle of Lake Saint Clair off the boat for a cooling off before bed. There's a willy feeling in my stomach, from high intensity excitement...nerves and exhilaration, all at once. This is a scary, freeing feeling. The unknown and the known. I'm a strong swimmer, the water is peaceful and calm. There are no sharks or predatory animals underneath me. But I can't see anything. No horizon, no sight. The stationary stars are fiercely bright and shine out a splendid ambiance. This is embracing the unknown. I'm one with the dark.
