I had a very lovely swim with Jim and Nicola out to the point and back. It was a mile that felt like five minutes in dreamily calm water, silky and soft, warm and inviting.
I don’t have much more to say about it because after it was over, Hazel and I played hooky and went to the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco and now it’s late and I’ve got a mind full of music. Among other great bands, we saw the incandescent Allison Russell and I am still buzzing with the joy of it. Also very grateful to have children who introduce me to great music.
