Thank You, NYC Swim

By Vladimir Brezina

IMGP7910 cropped small 2Unlike Johna, I’ve been reluctant to write too much about myself on Wind Against Current. Who would want to read that stuff?  And now I don’t have to write anything—NYC Swim has done it for me.

In each issue of their Cross Currents Newsletter, they profile a particular swimmer, or sometimes a volunteer, such as a kayaker, who has worked extensively with them. And so the latest issue of the newsletter features a piece entitled Volunteer of the Week: Vladimir Brezina

It’s got something about what I do when I am not kayaking, or blogging. So, if you want to read such stuff, there it is! :-)

  4. You are much more than just your blog! Wow! I think that is part of the fun of blogging. I am a neuro person myself-although I use it with people and therapy. :) I am amazed daily at the resilience of the the brain. I have enjoyed your blog. My brother lives in the city-of course, I think I get more info about the city from you blog than from him. Thank you for sharing the article. They did a terrific job on it!

  20. Cool!!!! Thanks for sharing it!!! It is funny what lies behind some pics or some words…I knew you were a neuroscientist but I thought you were dealing directly with humans…
    I agree…Brain is a mystery….And may be because of that we (I do not know about animals) are able to do the biggest and the most terrible things…
    BTW: Funny you like big cities having been first in Praga and Cambridge…:)

  21. Excellent… :-)

    In danish we have a funny saying, used when we make jokes about things like this “Hvorfor gøre ting i dag som vi kan få andre til at gøre i morgen ” – tramslated – “Why do things today, we could let other do tomorrow”… :-) :-) ;-)
