On a lighter note as opposed to the other day's heavy one, the warm weather has been turning into stormy weather and I've had several trips to the swimming pool halted but I had a relaxing time at the pool on Sunday. I had to hunker down in the water because there was a cool breeze but it was definitely nice to watch the clear blue sky and see the little birds fly by as I did the backstroke.
I saw this video, Making Waves, on NBC Nightly News and it gave me goosebumps. I couldn't embed the video but if you click on the link, you'll hear the inspiring story of two brothers, Bradford and John Tatum, who came of age when swimming pools were segregated; they now participate in senior games.
I don't know what made me shiver more -- the fact that they are still swimming at their ages (91 and 89) or the fact that they did clandestine swimming in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool.
How's that for getting your swim on -- no matter what?
