It’s almost midnight, and I had no plans for anything specific to post today, but then I wrote this right before friends came for dinner.
Here’s an excerpt of The Swimming Lesson:
“Don’t let go, Dad!” The boy shrieks as his father tugs him further away from the steps.
“I’ve got you,” the man assures. “Kick your feet. I promise I won’t let go.”
The boy kicks furiously, sending frothy water in every direction, while his father holds his hands, and walks backwards in circles, providing momentum and balance for his child.
