It’s just about a year now that I posted my first journal entry here. I described thinking about my writing while swimming, and mentioned two characters named Disney and Paris, who, RIP, moment of silence, no longer exist.
Now, a whole summer later, TA DA! I’ve just come back from the very same pool, where I did my expert backstroke with two new characters named Cody Louise and Wyatt. (They also do a lovely sidestroke, which, I have noticed, is a stroke you rarely see anyone do any more. Why is that?) These two, I’m sure, are keepers.
So, it seems, some fine things stay just the same, while others change. And by the way, if you don’t Joni Mitchell’s music, “Circle Game” is a tender, bittersweet song!
