Diana Nyad, Lady Leaf Style

Diana Nyad is my hero!  At the age of 64, she swam over 100 miles from Cuba to Florida in shark infested waters.  This was her fifth attempt but she never gave up.  Her mantra:  "Never give up!  You're never too old."  I believe this, and as I continue swimming for an hour a day, I love my time in the water.  I'm taken to a place where I cannot go in my 'walking' world.  I'm alone and all is quiet and serene in the large junior Olympic swimming pool at my clubhouse.

Little Tip: Find your place where you can dream, think, pray.  You will always return for more.

Until next summer, I wish you smooth sailing and oceans of blessings for the Autumn months ahead.
