From the WashingtonPost.com, by Lynn Sherr:

To call swimming a religious experience might sound like sacrilege.

But for many of us, every time we slip into a bikini, or plunge into the ocean, or pound out our laps, we’re actually taking part in a spiritual rite. Swimming is an ancient activity, combining the mystical properties of waters with the pure joy of…

Hello Jayson!
Sorry I didn't see your comment until today since I haven't been logging in since I started the profile! >_br/>I don't even remember how I found this site! I think it was because I was trying to find a particular Black sailor (Either HE Ross or Paul Mixon) and a link to his profile on this page came up. ^_^
