"A dive and everything disappears: the world is put in brackets until the next breath."
Wonderful essay dedicated to those who love water but also to those who simply want to take some rest and think of the feelings that this natural element communicates to us, L’arte di nuotare (i.e. “the art of swimming”) takes us by the hand and makes us feel immediately immersed in a blue world. "Those who swim," says the author, "resemble the flowing of life and the five senses become one." Water encircles all the body, giving a sense of peace and protection, removing the worries and noises imposed by the world.
Through a deep analysis of the various natative practices, from diving to apnea, crawl to dolphin, reaching the “finish line”, this delightful pamphlet tells us how special is the emotion the swimmer feels, who - in fact - comes out of the water smiling. A calm serenity and a sense of light fullfilment accompanies us all the time after practicing, no matter where you have been swimming (another theme of the book is that of the places where to swim; seas, rivers, lakes and pools).
Immerse yourself then, and become "liquid thinking"! Happy Rebirth!
