The fountain of youth reworked
Here the fantasy of Cranach’s 16th century painting is fast-forwarded to a scene in a swimming pool today. Male teenagers ignore Daisy (86), an older female swimmer but admire the body and the diving prowess of Sally, a younger woman. This pool cannot rejuvenate the older woman but she has the pleasurable experience of being recognised by Sally whom she had once taught. Sally is now a published writer. Both women recognise the expertise of the other and Daisy feels that she has succeeded in passing on her skills as a writer to the next generation. She feels she has had a positive effect on the young and keeps going!
We really love the positive two way exchange between Daisy and Sally.
