Getting Wet


                                                 Those who swim 
                                              on the surface of life
                                          risk drowning if they sink.

                                                 Those who swim
                                           in the mainstream of life
                                          need only come up for air.

    Smile ˜ I would have to imagine that the 'mainstream' in this verse points unto something much deeper and broader than that the ways of this world wherein we do live? ˜ And in that case yes, let us swim joyfully amid the waters of love transcending, dear beautiful Terry ˜ Love always, John!:) ˜

    To give of one's self from the heart letting people and life in, not living superficially. An attempt to weed out life's hurts and pain with a wall of indifference. Without the real lows the highs aren't hardly noticable. Thanks for your indepth review John. Huggs TLee

    To live a life of indifference for fear of pain and saddness is to loose the full effect of joy and happiness. Thank you for your kind words and kindness to review.
