Meet the new pool cleaner. Mr. Pool Shark is doing a super uber job of keeping the water sparkling clean.
After power walking yesterday morning, instead of doing yoga by the pool, I decided to get IN the pool for survival. Even at 5:30 in the morning temps are in the 80’s and climbing. After swimming a few laps I floated about the pool, for I was wearing my orthopedic swimsuit which also acts as a flotation device; must be the spandex. Or body fat percentage. Whatever.
I love floating in water, sound blocked out, feeling weightless. As I drift, my mind also drifts . . . for just a minute I feel like that 17-year-old girl at the lake swimming like a mermaid with my entire life ahead of me.
Mostly I think about how we have survived, thrived, after those years in the darkness, walking into walls, head banging, knees raw from praying. How my children have become more than I ever wished for. I think about how I overcame the fear that kept me stuck in a job that was sucking the life out of me and how free and weightless I am now and I realize that I still have my entire life ahead of me.
A Super Uber Life.
