It is possible to find the good in every situation. People have asked me which pools has been my favourite. They imagine I will pick the vast ones or the glamorous marble-clad ones or the empty serene ones. But they all have their own personalities and challenges. For every luscious, quiet pool there has been a mobbed one, stressful to swim in but thriving and full of life. For every spartan, suburban municipal pool there has been a swimmer who has exchanged a friendly word of encouragement or who has laughed with me about lane etiquette. And for every super-heated leisure pool there has been a friendly chatty lifeguard or receptionist. You can find a bit of good in everything if you really want to.
