Swimmer

I spent the afternoon observing the pure joy of a child soaking up the pleasure of being 'of' the water. His phrase.

He willingly shed the floats for a while. No fear in finding his own buoyancy, the power in his arms and legs. True child of my clan.

  3. A boy in his watery joy. Such coincidence as I just put a video in the mail addressed to "Charlie" c/o you as a very-belated birthday gift. Sent via the cheap rate it's due around the llth.

  5. When we used to go to Florida to visit friends there-I was in the pool all day.. floating. I also stayed until I was prune-e and slept soundly. Loved seeing this and reading your words.

Now we're having fun. Thanks, Liz , for reminding me that we are not knitting. It doesn't matter if the pieces are two to four...

Play it again Sam.
