My Crew At The Pool

My crew at the pool is a little more mature than the ones I used to fly with.

My crew at the pool is happy to be on board each day.

My crew at the pool has very expressive faces with deep smile lines and kind compassionate ones that blend together.

My crew at the pool embraces each day with a big “thank you” showing their appreciation for each moment.

My crew at the pool tries to stay focused on the positive because in the past they spent too much time not.

My crew at the pool, with their travels through life, has learned that among the blessings of life are the beauty of the sky, the clouds and the birds as they look up and think, “I am glad I am here; I am glad I found this wonderful space.”

My crew at the pool feels rich, blessed, and happy to be alive, sharing themselves each weekday morning at their favorite fountain of youth nestled between the hills in the Arroyo Seco.
