How often does one get twenty-effing-four access to a pool? Plus it’s good old sweltering Thailand, not bloody Melbourne in wintertime. So yeah, it’s just one of those little things I had to check off the bucket list: a midnight swim.
Unsurprisingly peaceful, and very surprisingly, not cold. Good time to study the stars while floating in the pool. To meditate and let the awareness expand, and to enjoy the welcome solitude.
The only three downsides to the entire brief episode:
- A couple horsing around in the pool and disrupting the peace somewhat.
- The dimly lit pool made it a little difficult to swim properly.
Just another one of those little pockets of peace I’ll always hold close to my heart in years to come.
