Anyone for a Swim?
I have a number of wonderfully romantic water pictures for Watery Wednesday, but I decided to stray from art today and share this photo I took on Sunday at Bend, Oregon's Lite Bite Festival. For the lady sitting on the chair, it will be day filled with icy watery experiences. I appreciate those who are able to laugh at themselves and provide others with good wholesome fun. In a world that is so filled with financial and time pressure, complicated family matters and geopolitical issues, it is great to take a few minutes on a beautiful day to enjoy life itself. As a person who is now over sixty and has measured his age on an 8 foot tape measure, I see I have come quite a distance, and am a little unnerved about the short span remaining. Perhaps all of us need to be dunked in icy water once in a while and come up for air with a smile on our face and say, "Life is great".
