Nyssa in one of her favorite pastimes. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"There are two barriers that often prevent communication between the young and their elders. The first is middle-aged forgetfulness of the fact that they themselves are no longer young. The second is youthful ignorance of the fact that the middle aged are still alive."
~ Jessamyn West (1902-1984), U.S. novelist. To See the Dream, part 1 (1956)
Nyssa loves to swim. We have never had a pool but she is always able to find someone who has. In Virginia she has the ocean but also through the years has loved to swim and dive in the Furhman's pool. Friend of her grandparents, she credits Mr. Furhman for teaching her to dive.
