"But more often there are regular people in the pool.  Beautiful women seniors doing water aerobics - mothers and grandmothers and great grandmothers - their massive breasts and guts reminding you how it is that women carry worlds.  When I swim by them I watch their legs and bodies underwater, and feel a strange kinship with a maternal lineage.  You know you can smile underwater.  You can laugh."
