“I think of what the lakes meant to me then and what they mean to me now. In the middle of the lake, I'm completely present. I'm no longer afraid to be alone. I've conditioned myself to the lake, to the cold, to the pain of it. I can hold it. I've made it mine.”
Jessica J. Lee, Turning

“But there’s a kind of offering in the generosity of water holding you afloat. In the way water holds feeling, how the body is most alive submerged and enveloped, there is the fullness of grace given freely.”
Jessica J. Lee, Turning: A Swimming Memoir

“Love was a lot like fear. It swallowed you whole, like water.”
Jessica J. Lee, Turning
