Diane, has posed the suggested topic of "What is your favorite room in your house? Why?" That one is easy for me but there is a hitch. My favorite room, or rather place, in this house is my pool. I suppose that's a cheat but it's the truth. I am sitting out on the deck outside the master bedroom looking down on the annual disaster but getting the pool clean and ready is a labor of love. I don't know how many readers subscribe to the notion of other lives lived but I am quite certain I spent my most recent life as something that lived in the water. Nothing as glam or fantastical as a mermaid or a dolphin but something completely at home in the water- some real fish. I never feel so alive as after as many hard laps as I can manage, just drifting, eyes on the sky, water in my ears with nothing in my head but my heartbeat.

The photo of your pool ... you must use it in a piece!
