Back in the swim again

A year ago, I wrote this post, and it struck me funny that this morning I started out with the exact same title I did then, until something jogged my memory and I went back and checked and realized, "Oops."

I gave up swimming for a while (okay, quite a while) because last summer Jim applied for a job in Seattle and I thought we might move so I didn't want to renew my three-month pool pass until I was sure we were staying. By then I had gotten out of the habit and forgotten how much I love the smell of chlorine at 5:30 a.m. and even more, how much I love the brief hour when all the rest of the house is still asleep and I can hear myself think.

Or not think, but just be.

Oh, I hear you. There is something lovely about chlorine in the morning, and that magnificent shower after a morning swim. Maybe I'll follow your example...
