So now I look at my dirty pool a tad differently than I did a day ago. I no longer look at it just "in desperate need of a cleaning" and how we need a gate to keep the dog out. It now connects something as simple (and literal) as the "dirt under our feet" to a bigger, broader, more global issue. Environmental issues that so many don't see--or choose not to look at. People have tried for years to shout it from roof tops, and many still are missing the message. Maybe the view from the pool might make a difference in making the message heard.
