Reverb 12

This year, when did you feel the most integrated with your body? Did you have a moment where there wasn’t mind and body, but simply a cohesive YOU, alive and present? (Author: Patrick Reynolds) (www.reverb10.com)

I don’t think I really relate to the world in these terms…Scott’s take on it pretty much articulates my general feeling of “what?” (the nice thing about doing these answers late is you can “borrow” other people’s).

But if I were really going to try to take the spirit of the thing, I’d say: swimming. I probably only swam once in 2009, and perhaps half a dozen times in 2010, so that’s already a huge increase. I used to swim 3-4 times a week, and loved it, and I think I would like to go back. I’m no athlete, just lane swimming in the “medium” lane, but it’s such a beautiful monotony–you’re moving your whole body in concert, and yet your mind is free to think about the story your working on, birthday gifts, the fate of the universe. Actually, maybe that’s the opposite of what this question is asking, but it’s a really beautiful feeling.
