Alexander Ward talks of his wild water photographic swimming project that persuaded him to take to the river too, something that landed him a stay in hospital. Also today, poetry, photography and the mental fight against chronic illness, sublime pictures from the humble smartphone, gratitude and hiking, 'that was 22' and movie homework for the holidays. We end with inspirational guests from the year in a special 'And Finally'. Friday's Photowalk returns on January 6th. See the SHOW PAGE and our thanks to the Extra Milers and mpb.com.
