My favorite time of day is sunrise. Today found me at the North Ogden pool where I swam into the sunrise. Strangely, I've never done that before. I had the pool all to myself (and a couple of seagulls on the fence who seemed disgruntled). Though I rested often, I swam for 45 minutes, watching the light slide across a few clouds until, reaching under them, it set Mt. Ben Lomond's snow on fire. Then the light rose above the clouds, and Ben Lomond went back to sleep. I don't have the vocabulary to describe the colors. I felt so alive. However, I learned, again, that atrophy is a terrible thing. They say a storm is coming in tomorrow. I've never had the joy of swimming in a storm before, either. If they'll stay open, I gotta try it.
