Patchwork

by donna smith ammons

In the past six weeks, I have dipped my toes in the Gulf of Mexico and in the Atlantic Ocean. Several years ago, I dipped them in the Pacific Ocean. I love the ocean and yet, it scares me.

I am not a strong swimmer and I have a great respect for large and small bodies of water. I’m fine in a swimming pool or wherever I can see and touch the bottom.
