I was watching the girls in the Splash Pad at the Lakeside LeFrak of Prospect Park, a very large area with sprinklers on the outside and about an inch of water covering the ground on the inside. I was meditating, and waves of ecstasy were washing over me with each breath. There was a large speaker playing music and Abba's dancing queen came on. I got up and went into the center of the Pad with the girls and began to dance. It was great because the inch of water became a dance prop, something to kick and splash with my feet. Then I spun the girls around and we worked on some new moves, splashed in the sun. At one point time slowed down and I watched the water fly from my dancing feet, glittering with diamonds of sunlight, and thinking: this is it!

We made it to 4 other playgrounds today, epic, but that was the highlight.

Another nice moment was in the Imagination Playground. On the ground in tile were the words "Where sea serpents roam/ I love to whistle!" And to illustrate the point there was a large bronze sea serpent with water flowing over it like a giant wave. Whistle! That sums it up. This was the answer to last night's anxiety dream.

After the beautiful day learning Paul Simon songs on the ukulele on the beach, diamonds on the soles of her shoes, jumping off the dock into lake with girls, all smiles, I come home to a doctor's appointment, check out healthy for now, luxuriate in the fact that this is a doctor in the West Village and not Queens. Queens care = queen scare. Afterward dancing on the corner of 23rd and 5th, in the setting sun people streaming all-around. Beck's "WOW, it's all happening now "on auto repeat. Then Blood Orange for the home stretch. Caught 2 lightning bugs for the girls.

Subway ad reappropriation. Christian Slater = Christians later.

DOD (discovery of the day)

Paul Simon's last concert in his home town of Forest Hills. Dancing hard to "Me and Julio" in the rain. Glorious!
