My daughter Margaret's words:
"When I teach kids how to float,
I tell them that the
most buoyant part of their bodies
is right over their hearts.
I ask them to point to it,
and with little seashell fingernails,
they tap tap tap their breastbones.
I tell them to raise their chins
towards the sky and
open their arms like a flying bird,
so that their buoyant chests are open.
I ask them to inhale,
like filling up a big birthday balloon,
and feel their breath take them
to the top of the water,
light as a feather,
relaxed, gentle, slow.
And they float,
and they smile,
again, and again, and again.
Deep inhale, lift.
Your heart is the most buoyant part of your body."
Well done My Mermaid Queen!!! (pulling you into my arms for a glorious heart to heart embrace.)
