Tughra (Official Signature) of Sultan Suleiman. Istanbul, Turkey. c. 1555-1560. Ink, opaque watercolor, and gold on paper.

Where did you grow up? Or swim at least. (I’ve done Lake Superior too. And other Michigan lakes in April.)

well, most of my swimming was in the Adirondacks, in NY, but I was in Wisconsin for a speed skating camp one summer. 

I always tell myself I won’t go in the water, but then it always looks so nice…and then of course once you actually end up going in it’s fucking freezing

well, I spent my youth jumping into mountain ponds & streams, so I screwed up my cold water sensors entirely!  (I once swam in Lake Superior in June with no wetsuit; the average temperature is something like 60 Fahrenheit)

went to the beach today, wearing a sundress because i didn’t think i was going in the water.  of course i ended up girding it up to the waist and swimming, because whatever happens, I’ll always be the ten-year-old who had to go in to any body of water, no matter the size.
