As the temperature approached 95 degrees today in Bend, Oregon, many families brought their children to the community pool. For Watery Wednesday, I decided to splash bright color and a variety of lines and shapes into a picture of the water park. In the foreground was, unfamiliar to me, a contrivance consisting of the red buckets which fill and then tilt, dousing gleeful little heads below. Behind it, a serpentine yellow water slide beckoned the adventurous. I saw myself as one of the daring, sliding on my belly like an insane eel through slime-slick curves and disappearing into the pool cool bubbles. Under the soothing summer sun, there was joy and laughter, and I heard life's lovesong.
