Online Open Studio Day 4

I never liked swimming because all I knew were noisy square pools smelling of chlorine. In winter 10 years ago, we drove out here to see our house. The estate agent had not told us that there was a lake nearby. We went for a short walk through the snow and there it was: A lovely frozen lake with a solitary ice-skater on it. 
Over the years, I grew accustomed to lakeswimming. I loved reading Jessica J. Lee’s „Turning“ which taught me that swimming in cold water doesn’t kill you. However, I still prefer morning swims in spring and summer. It’s the best way to start the day.
