Great concert in that wonderful auditorium. Oh those marvelous windows. The violinist Lara St. John is so talented, but does she need to call herself "Shiksa?" Where I come from it is an insulting term as any other ethnic put down.
We try to keep it private. We put signs all around and hope people read them. The pool is just for us, small, a bit old, but I love lying on my back and looking at the sky and watching the trees against it. I am especially happy when Bernie is swimming nearby. Just a simple pleasure on a summer day. I remember with happiness the raucous sound of family in the pool. What joy.
