Waves of memory from the Pool
Posted by
After almost a year, I returned to swimming this Sunday. I left the 84 degree pool, refreshed and remembering all the many years of childhood swimming at the Wing Park Pool in Elgin, Illinois; the joyful days of swimming with my baby boy; going to the beaches in Mexico and California with him and my hubby; surviving the hot desert summers with summer passes at the near empty local hotels; trying different pool venues with and without lifeguards and recognizing at my age I am not doing laps without a guard and his/her floatie tracing my strokes!
