Dear Readers,

For the last two days, I have been swimming at Falls Lake. Sunday, the beach and water were jam-packed and families were cooking meat over fires and cracking open chest-sized coolers to retrieve drinks. In the water there were circles of boys and girls shouting and splashing, whispering pairs of elementary school girls, a solitary girl of eight or nine somersaulting and diving,  teenagers and one older couple embracing and kissing, three men and a young, gurgling  baby (kicking in that happy-baby way) whom they passed back and forth among themselves. The water is warm with icy shocks here and there.

I have been busy, but not blogging.

I am back in the swim of things.

Expect me every week.
