A new, redesigned pool complex will emerge in coming months, to open next summer. It will no doubt have more efficient pumps, better filters, and make more efficient use of space. Solar panels may sprout on the rooftops. A waterslide will entertain.
But for now, I'm grateful to have caught a glimpse of something soulful and profound beneath the old pool's simple facades.
Another homage to the pool, with more photos and text, is posted at http://princetonnaturenotes.blogspot.com/2011/09/homage-to-swimming-pool.html.
