I will act as if I do make a difference. -- William James


I plunge into the freezing depths. First my fingers, arms and body, then my legs and toes. Tiny bubbles burst and gurgle and giggle around me as I glide through the blue, so aqueous and fluid. I reach in front of me and clutch the vastness of a universe that extends all around me. Soon I am part of it, as I draw nearer and nearer to the abyss. Every stroke, each constant rhythmic motion swallows me deeper in a flawless profundity. I plummet so deep that a twilight descends upon me and I yearn for the light, a hope, the bleak joy of daylight. I amplify my courage, my strength, and my will and take one last swish of my legs, one seize of the darkness radiating from the vastness as if scaling a mountain. I glide to the surface and breathe.

Thanks. When I was writing it, I was holding my breath, too!

I found myself holding my breath while I was reading.  I felt like I was there, wanting to take a breath after breaking the surface.  Wow!  Awesome work!
