Mermaids

March 24, 2015

I am happiest in the sea – the colder, deeper and bluer the better. My daughter Iole asked me recently where I learned to swim, and I couldn’t recall. My father likes to tell people that he threw me into the sea as a baby and that I just started to swim. I’m not sure that that’s true, but I do know that I have the confidence and grace of a mermaid in water. When I was pregnant with Luma, our littlest one, I swam twice weekly. I’m not sure if it was the salt water or the fabulous octogenarians I swam with, but I felt weightless and  buoyed every time I stepped into the pool.
