|The first swim of the year is magical. After a long winter of cold
and snow, you just want to lay back, relax, and swim to your heart's
content. But the swim is much more than that. The untouched surface
covers a deep and soul-cleansing water. Not just any water. Purifying.
Washing away all of the winter's anxities and passions.
Unlike soap scents, it leaves the scent of, well, perfection. It's
saying," This girl is confident, so sure of herself."
Something has been lifted off of you. A shell removed, after the
winter of deepening thickness in which nothing but that first swim can
remove. So swim that first swim. Revel in the new complete you. And
remember, it's only once a year.
