“It’s never too late to have a happy childhood.” — Tom Robbins.

I was in the pool swimming laps, my favorite way to distress and exercise. While I was underwater, it ocurred to me that perhaps the secret to obtain internal peace is to rediscover the simple pleasure of a favored activity solely for the satisfaction of executing the act. Just do the thing, delight in it, and savor the results without the demand of competition or professional pursuit. A practice of the literal art of living, similar to what play means for children.
