Lately, probably because Crystal in my Friday Snippets story is a swimmer, I've found myself contemplating water and swimming a lot lately. I was trying to remember the last time I went swimming. And I can't. It must have been over ten years ago. In fact it might have been closer to fifteen or sixteen years ago when we went to a park on the Columbia River west of Longview, WA with Ed's two brother's families and one of the children born in January 90 was two. I can't remember a more recent occasion.
Swimming represents serenity for me. As well as joy.
In fact water in many manifestations is nearly synonymous with serenity for me.
