In order to float you have to let go
On a normal summer morning I was on my way to my studio. Walking over the Kornhausbrücke I looked down on the Aare. A woman in a bathing costume was running across the Altenbergsteg and in the middle of the bridge she climbed onto the railing to jump into the river.
It was still relatively early and there was no other soul on the Aare. A rarity in summer. From noon at the latest, there are swimmers everywhere. But this woman had the whole Aare for herself at that time. On the Kornhausbrücke bridge, which is situated higher up, the morning bicycle, pedestrian and public transport traffic moved in both directions.
The woman jumped into the Aare and swam away. I watched her for a while and then walked further over the bridge towards my studio.
