Pool of Memories(186/365)

Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone…

Joni Mitchell, “Big Yellow Taxi”, Album: Ladies of the Canyon, 1970

TIME: 7:01 PM
PLACE: Around town
SUBJECT:  Site of the former city pool

This is where our city swimming pool used to be.
This is where I learned to swim.
This is where I worked in the bathhouse the summer I was 15.
This is where the
basket I now have in my pantry was used.
Now it’s gone.
