The music is thumping in the background but I am not paying any attention to it. There is a pool session in an hour in Providence. I need to organize, gather focus and drive at the same time.
Changing into trunks and walking into the hot, humid pool area doesn’t kick off any of the adrenalin I normally feel while teaching. That doesn’t hit until after Carl’s intro when my focus crystallizes on the task ahead. Someone is pushing their limits today and I get to be part of that. This is way too much fun.
