Jason, that was so great. It would only be the smallest shift for today's post to be the inspiration for an excellent children's book.

Years ago, our son was not so good on land as a boy but in 9th grade he took up swimming and by 12th grade he was the state champ. He still loves water.

So true. And you nailed the effort and courage it takes to make that change from land to sea and to find the right current. Bravo!
