November 24, 2007
There is a long history of men sitting naked together that I donít know anything about. They sweat, they bathe, they steam. They probably talk sometimes. Thereís a picture in my head of rotund men in their 50ís sitting with arms stretched wide over the back of a bench, legs spread taking up as much room as possible. For some reason I see them smoking. But thatís ridiculous.

This morning I shared a sauna with four, most decidedly non-rotund men, 21, 32, 58, and 60. All black belts in Tae Kwon Do. And me, a 51 year old woman. Admiring.
