Day 146 of The Summer of the many Blossoms
The sun shone very bright today. I do not feel so happy! My horrid little sister Tsarmina has been teasing me about my diving.Mother is teaching me how to dive gracefully.She says everyone (including my sister) should know how to dive but my sister has a mortal fear of water.Mother says that no good ever came of such a thing. It is strange that Tsara should be so, for I like nothing more than to go swimming. I think that secretly, Mother loves water as much as I do. where did she learn to dive so well?How I wonder.But shall I ever know? I think not.
