“The mind that is not baffled is not employed. ” — Wendell Berry

About once a week I coach my Masters swim group. On occasion, I offer stroke tips. It’s a bit cheeky of me because I’m not a technique expert. So I Googled some easy-to-grasp tips, like keeping the elbows high during freestyle, and not over-reaching upon entry — all in order to help the swimmers achieve a very important long-term goal: swim till they’re 100.
