Water I’ve Loved: Diane’s Pool

We dive deep in the fourth installment of Pam Wye’s  “Water I’ve Loved” graphic memoir, which she is serializing at MUTHA Magazine. She’s also currently at work on a graphic history/memoir of the 150-year-old St. Benedict’s Prep School in Newark, NJ where she’s worked as an Art teacher for the past 15 years.

    This is awesome. What an artist–and what a story she tells about her life! Thanks for featuring. St. Benedict’s caught my eye. Totally random, but I used to work for a company that worked on their annual appeals, so I wrote for the prep school once (around the time it was featured on 60 Minutes–amazing place. Again, thanks for such an interesting piece.

      Hey Rebecca,
      Thanks for your kind words! I really appreciate it. Small world – that you wrote fund-raising appeals for St. Benedict’s! We’re in summer session currently, still going strong. A place teeming with history and daily stories!
      Thanks again!

    Wow. Water. I was born and went through most of highschool on the island of Aruba, so I went from salty fetal water to salty sea water. I am at my calmest yet most alive when I’m in water. I swim as many days a week as possible, in our town pool, year round. I am energized at the same rate as I expend energy. Amazing, what water can do.
