Doug made a commitment over the winter and when I learned about it I thought he was crazy. But, the more I thought about it, the more I understood.
It was a commitment to attend each session at Camp Edwards, the camp he attended as a little boy, and escort kids on their first open water swim. A l/2 mile swim to the elusive Buck Island. A few weeks ago I went along with him on his first swim with the kids and I really understood the magnitude of its importance right away.
This commitment has ended up being so important that it has been covered by 365 Barrington, a clever an entertaining blog written by a new friend of mine, Liz Luby. Liz is an extremely talented writer, to say the least. Plus, she’s really nice. She started this blog a little over a year ago and it has become the hit of our town.
There is a link to the story about the commitment over on the top right of this page.
