Activity in Water

What I can do in water: as time has gone forward I continue to be more at home in water than on land. Balance on land (especially in the dark) is poor. In water it is as though I am wrapped in a protective blanket of water. A gentle embrace. Almost sensuous. But water can be a tough mistress. To understand it. To work with it and never against it. That is impossible. It would be like trying to move a mountain. Never to forget that it is potentially very dangerous. A skilled pilot can do amazing things with an aircraft, but total vigilance is necessary all the time to remain safe in the plane. People quite often never think like this when driving cars. Skilled drivers do. It's how they become skilled. And an average driver will never be anything else.
