it was 107 degrees today. the inside of the house was 82 no matter what the a/c unit attempted. friends who have a swimming pool let me come over for respite from the heat. i floated and could have continued to “dead man” float all afternoon and evening, inspired by a baby i had seen on “you tube” and memories from early childhood of my father floating in the ocean when we went on vacation. i’ve never been a swimmer yet every member of my family was a prolific one. i don’t know the reason. i guess it has to do with my brain and the sense of balance or motion particular to me. I do well in yoga and aerobic activity and enjoy long distance running and climbing and seem to have tremendous endurance athletically – yet i’m not a swimmer. but i love to float.
