this is the first summer since my kidhood that the swimming pool has
become a living ocean and when I delve in, I again grow a fin and become
a magical mermaid. Memories flood and engage me in play as I dive, flip
and swirl around. The endorphins released in the water dance excite the
imagination in mygiddy child mind and offer release and refreshment to
my almost middle-aged body. It is my season of dance! On earth, dance
eludes me - the water, however, is my stage of flowing grace!
