Linton diving for mud

Mud-diving is remarkably sensuous.

Slipping into the coolest of several ponds, you swim down several feet and thrust your hands into the soft mud. Kicking for momentum, you push through to harder mud, then harder still, until your hands glom into the hard but pliable clay mud best for sculpting.

The deeper into the mud you go, the warmer it becomes. You can feel the warmth of Mother Earth.
