When I swim, thoughts come and go, flowing like the water. How Swimming Saved My Life is a book about my experience of swimming as exercise and as a release from the stresses of life. “My fury makes me a bad person and the one thing that saves me from being a monster is swimming. Water is one of the few places where I am graceful.”
