Picture of the Day

December 22, 2013


Today would have been my mom's 80th birthday
and I thought of her at this sweet secret beach with
brackish lagoon fed by intermittent ocean inlet and
freshwater falls of jungle gulch, clear green and blue
rocky-bottomed pool
wide and deep enough for diving
from smooth-stoned banks. I'm grateful she imparted a
lifelong love of swimming. Wish she could've seen this day.
