My busy work schedule was crammed into the first three days of this week but today and tomorrow are all mine! Just got back from a great swim in the outdoor pool at the fitness center. The pool was busy. Beside the lap lanes, a water aerobics class was in high gear and swimming lessons were going on in a corner spot. Now, I'm headed to the studio to continue working on those etching plates I've mentioned.
Doing my laps this morning, a great swim memory from a few years ago came to mind: It was a foggy, cool, rainy Sunday afternoon and I was the only person in the pool (for reasons I can't at all fathom). The life guard, to keep from falling asleep during such light duty, I assume, began walking around the outside of the pool singing! Blues, jazz and opera. He had a great voice and it was wonderful to listen to him in the middle of all that atmosphere.
