I remember taking this shot. I was sitting on the edge of our hotel pool reading a novel on my iPad and I stopped and started playing with my camera. Playing in Aruba. It was almost 11:30 and people around me in the pool were way ahead of me with drinks from the bar. The morning pool aerobics class was just beginning and even though it was hot the Aruba breezes kept us cool.
I’m home but back in Aruba that morning I remember continues…
Home in reality and happy to have this photo that can take me back. Home though demands that I reject the 11:30 mudslide for a new digital project, monthly bills to pay, exercise at the gym and worry about the world. I never stopped worrying about world in Aruba or about my fellow teachers working in their classrooms, trying to teaching in this nightmare but it was easier from the edge of the pool as my vantage point.
As I look out my window, I see green and sunshine and on this St. Patricks Day my Dad turns 90. How about that? Big party on Sunday!
