I worked week-old stiffness out of my neck at the Kennedy Rec Complex.
I did eight laps before being overrun by the furious front crawlers in the designated lap lane.
I thought about Thich Nhat Hanh and mindfulness as I watched the clear blue sky and the clear clouds.
I practiced doing the sidestroke on my left side which turned out to be a clumsy effort and I, of course, practiced the front crawl.
Lately, I've been feeling like this clinging bird on a wire.
