Forward Crawl and Backstroke doing well. The dolphin kick was a bit of a mess. Not using the quads enough to match the top and bottom kicks – working on it.
Today dievca’s building is shutting down the elevators from 5 am to 7 am for a full fire inspection. dievca has a plan for coffee on the sundeck to watch the sunrise and an early swim. How packed are the elevators going to be at 4:45 am? Who knows – worst case scenario, dievca has coffee at home and she cancels the swim reservation.
Good Morning! have a lovely week.
Winter Dawn – poemPosted: January 2, 2023 Filed under: Home and Garden, Neighborhood Anecdotes (NYC), Poetry | Tags: BDSM, D/s, Dawn, dievca, Life, Love, Monday, Morning, NYC, peace, photo, poem, Sunrise, translation, Tu Fu, Winter 1 Comment
The men and beasts of the zodiac
Have marched over us once more.
Green wine bottle and red lobster shells,
Both emptied, litter the table.
“Should auld acquaintance be forgot?” Each
Sits listening to his own thoughts,
And the sound of cars starting outside.
The birds in the eaves are restless,
Because of the noise and light. Soon now
In the winter dawn I will face
My fortieth year. Borne headlong
Towards the long shadows of sunset
By the headstrong, stubborn moments,
Life whirls past like drunken wildfire.
Translated from the Chinese by Kenneth Rexroth
Tu Fu (713-771) was the leading poet in the T’ung Dynasty of 8th century China. In this remarkable piece called “Winter Dawn,” he captures a moment of flashing epiphany with language, so simple, that speaks from another plain and another time, decades earlier, about the swift flood of life rushing by — as John Prine wrote, “like a broken-down dam.”
dievca believes that Mr. Rexford took liberties in the translation to draw the poem into the future – its still lovely.

The dawn broke over the ocean, gradually expanding into pale yellow.
The day opened up into the 90’sF (30’sC) due to the humidity.
dievca looks like the players in the World Cup with sweat,
but the temperature of the water is lovely.

Being walkers with the dawn and morning,
Walkers with the sun and morning,
We are not afraid of night,
Nor days of gloom,
Being walkers with the sun and morning.
~ Langston Hughes
