As the sun rises on the Texas Pool’s 56th summer season, I am reminded that everyone needs a little place of their own to get away from it all. The Texas Pool is that place and DFW’s closest saltwater destination. “That's where you wanna go to get away from it all…” The Beach Boys
There are times when the world is racing past at a frantic rate, and when I turn on the news, it’s all bad. My “to-do” list grows so large, I don’t know how to prioritize it all. Sometimes, I have to tell the children (and my husband), to take a number and get in line. Although the sky may be shining bright outside, a rain cloud appears just over my desk. The gloom threatens to settle in and those are the only Pokémon I can catch. When sleep is elusive and I discover that I am both a night owl AND an early bird, I know I’ve crossed over the stress line in the sand. There’s only one remedy. I’ve got to take a break and get away. The Texas Pool is an easy escape. We all hope to find our place in the sun. Sometimes it’s closer than you think.
