If we believe in nothing, if nothing has any meaning and if we can affirm no values whatsoever, then everything is possible and nothing has any importance.

Albert Camus, The Rebel

No better way to begin the New Year than going out to the 40 Foot for a dip. We thought. In the old year. Really good idea.

In the New Year, on the water’s edge, we nearly had second thoughts.

It just felt unbelievably fantastic when we got out. Pure beauty.

Best thing I’ve done this year.

If I didn’t know before, I learnt it today: there’s nothing you can’t do.

We didn’t go for a long swim. I just dipped in. There were boundaries dictated by the swell and the currents. But that was ok.

No need to worry. Everything is possible.

You can feel the happiest in the freezing cold.

So good that we thought: why just do it at the beginning of the year? Why not more regularly?

Live a happy life, forget about those tired old New Year resolutions you’re renewing every year. They don’t have any meaning. Nothing has. Then everything is possible.

I’m feeling good about life and our way of living it.

Happy 2023!
