Phosphorescence: On Awe, Wonder and Things That Sustain You When the World Goes Dark by Julia Baird – Book Review

Baird is an Aussie journalist who’s had a terrible run of health and other issues, but has come through it through her love of early morning sea swimming. In this book, she explores this and how to get through tough times.

It’s beautiful, that’s for sure. And I’m somewhat jealous not just that she lives somewhere so close to the beaches of Sydney, that she has a top group of swimming mates and that this is the thing for her that she draws on for her own health. However, it’s not my thing, and just reading about it was plenty for me.

Certainly, the coincidence of this book coming out right during the first Melbourne lockdown meant that it really had a strong drive for many folks.
