I don’t swim to exercise. Rhythmic laps have never been my thing. Tonight, I swim because I’m restless, unsettled, and water helps to shift things back into place.
Mary lives in Atlanta with her husband and rescue dog, where she works for a nonprofit, teaches yoga, and blogs on her personal site www.maryconroyalmada.com. She loves storytelling through words and photos and travels and reads as much as time will allow. She believes in seeking joy, soul-nourishing connections, a good bottle of wine, and getting eight hours of sleep. Find her on Instagram @maryconroyalmada.
