The swimming pool is our creative catalyst,
The ability to move and float through water connects us to a primary sense of the imaginary.
When in water, no need to take notes, good ideas remain, the others quickly vanish.
Whilst swimming distractions, are few, ideas are clear as physical activity stimulates the mind.
You jump in, detached from the “real world”, gravity distorts and constraints disappear.
In the swimming pool we play, we move, we smile.
On the surface conversations are key, ideas launched,
possibilities manoeuvred, debates enjoyed,
whereas underwater we step back for a moment of isolation and introspection.
A moment of suspension, a productive moment of creation.
What is the difference between seeing and creating?
Deviate from original intent.
