Waking up at the Pool | Day 15
This was Emiliana's idea. I said "Where do you want to see the sunrise this morning?"
She has some of the best ideas. :) Only a lovely grandma swimming laps joined us and that glorious light bouncing off the water.
Something about the water.
Something about how it responds when we move. Zero gravity.
Not unlike the wind, only we can tangibly see it, feel it, notice how it responds.
Have you ever had the music up so loud in your car, or any where for that matter, and you're right next to a speaker drinking and all of the sudden you see the liquid in your cup moving to the beat? It's the wildest thing.
Waves. Energy. It all feels like magic to me.
Emiliana is so close to swimming on her own. For now I throw floaties on her and she doesn't fear swimming "like a mermaid" in the deep end, so I'm grateful for that. I try to do a lap (haha, more like kicking my legs so I don't sink) and she paddles right along laughing like a crazy! Seriously, the amount that girl laughs when she is in water... I feel like we need to live by the ocean (?) !! I feel so great after a swim though. It's like the muscles of my body breathe a sigh of relief a few hours later...
Of course this was the first time we'd ever arrived at the pool at 6:45am! The quietude and light makes me want to wake up to water every day.
(Side note: The last time I spoke at a conference I met the incredible staff of LiveFashionABLE, a sustainable fashion company based out of Nashville. We got these towels from them! I like to give them a plug whenever I can, because they have a really beautiful vision/mission! Go check them out!)
