No more pooling around…

Well, as the winter sets in here in Cape Town, this man turns to work. Things change. The leaves fall from the trees, losing their colour; the ivy reddens, while the sky grows grey and dark. Yet one thing turns to green: the pool. Now neglected, even by the children; covered in a frayed net,  the pump running fewer hours to reduce electricity, where, or rather what, else to turn, but that pea-soup shade. Blue will have to wait, for the skies of summer, and the Blue 52 infomercials that Noah loves so much.
