Why We Swim



In one chapter of her book “Why We Swim” author and swimmer Bonnie Tsui writes: “the ocean’s liquid fingers have a way of transfixing us in thought” and thereby asks herself what the magic of water is, what does water do to us? The mere sight of a lake, river or the sea may put us into a certain state of mind, which Tsui describes as a “particular kind of reverie” and when we let ourselves slide into the water we suddenly find ourselves in a quite liminal and precarious space. “Here we are, suspended, yet moving; floating, yet ever in danger of sinking.”
Bonnie Tsui: Why We Swim, London 2018.
