Hanlon’s Point is one of the few beaches in Ontario where clothing is optional. Today, I took off all of my clothes in celebration of my fifty pound weight loss and buff if aged body.
I went in to the frigid waters of Lake Ontario to baptize myself, to mikvah myself, to purify myself so that when I came out of the lake, I would be cleansed, I would be healed, I would be reborn.
And I did, and I was.
This is a selfie of naked me I took at Hanlon’s Point to commemorate the moment.
Cue Eva Cassidy’s ‘Wade In The Water.’
