Yesterday, in the pool, I had the idea of writing about experiences with water; a lake, an ocean, a pool has an influence on everyone. The reflective quality of water speaks to us...the way a lake will look dark and moody on a cloudy day, or how it sparkles and looks so joyful and inviting under sunny skies. Yesterday's high school pool experience had more to do with temperature than looks. There's really nothing as uncomfortable as immersing your body into too cold water. I asked myself, "why?, what makes you do this?" Health, for a dollar a week.
