You've been walking in circles, searching. Don't drink by the water's edge. Throw yourself in. Become the water. Only then will your thirst end.   — Jeanette Berson

Dive right in. Take a refreshing plunge under the careful watch of vigilant sunburned lifeguards, on duty from their towering stands.

Author/poet John O'Donohue said "water takes on the shape of whatever contains it: jug, stream, well, river, lake, ocean, tears, rain, mist or moisture." I painted this from my studio looking out over our womb-shaped pool which beckons below. With 90 percent of the human body comprised of water, swimming... in a way... is sort of like going back into the womb, and to our first experience of existence. No wonder why we all want beach houses and lake front property.  

Thanks for testing the waters here.
