I swam laps today, for 30 minutes. Afterwards, I tried to channel David Hockney, and painted the colors of the swimming pool. It felt good, to sit by the pool, in my wet bathing suit and actually feel cool. It was 94 today.
The potted plant , on the right, has grown 4 feet in a month! It spent its first two years in the sun, and now is thriving in the shade. I know how it feels.
