Aquadettes: California, Synchronized Swimming, and Mary Jane

A short documentary on Margo Bauer, a seventy-five year old woman who participates in a Southern California synchronized swimming club called Aquadettes. Many of the members have arthritis, joint replacements, and other health challenges, but together they remain active in the pool — though Bauer admits, she needs a little something extra to get her through the day. The short film playfully shows Bauer’s peers practicing their routines, beaming in delight to a slow-mo swing tune. Their overly flamboyant costumes show what humor they have today and makes me pray I will be that cool and active when I’m that age. This film is a part of a series called California is a Place. With images of characteristic palm trees on SoCal streets, my heart swooned for the West. Click here to view.

People are afraid to merge on highways

Hello, Friends,
DC’s winter has been cold and snowy. Today the wind is forecasted to gust up to sixty mph! I’m dreaming of the trip Daryle and I took a year ago to Los Angeles. The temperature was in the 70s, the sky was blue, and the shopping on Melrose was fabulous.
