Kinda like how this video makes us wish we could shut off this computer, throw some stuff in a pack, and head for the waves. Download the "Swimming" mp3 at Moon Tides' Bandcamp page....read more

To stand nearly naked and heavy from winter on the water’s edge, wade awkwardly into the shallows, dive under the first cold wave, taste first salt, surface and dive again to reach the calmer waters beyond, floating there until water and skin become the same temperature — this is the best way......read more

Clear Water Revival

Bleach is a substance I've come to understand I should avoid contact with, so swimming in it seems...counterintuitive. Thankfully, the......read more
