All I have to say is WOW.
Greenlake in Seattle, a 3 mile circumference, is usually a place where people enjoy walking their dogs, take a run, ride their bikes or just hang out. And in December is COLD, no doubt. But apparently it's a just as good as any place (i.e. Bookstore, coffeeshop, etc.) to "publicize" one's art by jumping into the freezing water. Crazy poets. I'd rather be warm.
