This colourful two minute clip allows a glimpse into the world of a lap swimmer. This world is a physical one - it is my primary exercise - in an outdoor setting that offers much more. As I count down laps, I find that I can work through 'stuff' and gain fresh perspectives on aspects of my life. It is a restorative place.
The pool is situated in a venue which has several tall eucalypts in the grounds - it's pleasant to look up at them after the swim.
Other lap swimmers probably have similar feelings about their sport. But swimming is more than just a sport. As I state at the end of the film, 'Swimming is the Best!'
