July 19, 2021, was a summer day like any other in Baltimore; hot and pretty humid. From my office, I could hear all the kids at the community pool across the street. I love the sounds in our neighborhood and am especially drawn to and fond of the sounds of the kids playing and swimming […]

Do You Feel Like You’re Swimming Outside in the Cold?

It’s mid-November in Maryland. It’s chilly. Would you swim outside in the cold?

Continuing On In a Time of Uncertainty

As a fresh 24-year-old, I have never experienced anything remotely close to this pandemic. I remember being in kindergarten, and my mom picking me up on 9/11.
