33: Swimming to a Different Conclusion — from Story Night

SN11SCThis is a rebroadcast (Repodcast if you’re going to be like that.) from Story Night. I’ll be doing this again at least once later this month.

In 2009 I jumped into a pool after my 2-year-old had fallen in. Between the time I jumped and the time I got to him, I had time to wonder if he would need CPR, if I knew CPR and time to have a quick memory of a family I knew growing up.

This story was part of our Oct. 1, 2015 Story Night. The night’s themes were those that could be found in Jonathan Evison’s book, The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving. The book was the featured title in Kitsap Regional Library’s “One Book, One Community” program for 2015.
