Apart from my Hawaii New Year’s traditions,
(see last year’s post ~ Going Bamboo)
I have been intrigued with the idea of Polar Bear Plunges as a way to begin a year.
Maybe it’s the swimmer in me.
Or my inner polar bear.
If I look into it more deeply, it must be a metaphor!
Facing the unknown in the cold icy depths.
Bracing, and diving into the elements!
And celebrating our willingness to begin all over again, a new year!
And maybe look silly while we are doing it.
I’ll remember this while I swim in a lovely heated pool today,
and plunge into a hot spa and sauna.
Best New Year’s Wishes, SDM
