Jim Harrison Quotes: Perhaps Swimming Was Dancing Under The

Perhaps Swimming Was Dancing Under The Water, He Thought. To Swim Under Lily Pads Seeing Their Green Slender Stalks Wavering As You Passed, To Swim Under Upraised Logs Past Schools Of Sunfish And Bluegills, To Swim Through Reed Beds Past Wriggling Water Snakes And Miniature Turtles, To Swim In Small Lakes, Big Lakes, Lake Michigan, To Swim In Small Farm Ponds, Creeks, Rivers, Giant Rivers Where One Was Swept Along Easefully By The Current, To Swim Naked Alone At Night When You Were Nineteen And So Alone You Felt Like You Were Choking Every Waking Moment, Having Left Home For Reasons More Hormonal Than Rational; Reasons Having To Do With The Abstraction Of The Future And One's Questionable Place In The World Of The Future, An Absurdity Not The Less Harsh For Being So Widespread.
