“There must be quite a few things a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them. Whenever I'm sad I'm going to die, or so nervous I can't sleep, or in love with somebody I won't be seeing for a week, I slump down just so far and then I say: "I'll go take a hot bath.”
Sylvia Plath - The Bell Jar
The tub and taking a bath in it is a pleasure my Rosemary and I share. In a more romantic past of ours that sharing would have had us both in the tub at the same time.
We have all kinds of bubble bath liquids (mine is lavender-scented). In this trying year the tub is a daily (sometimes twice) solace. My youngest daughter Hilary gave me a special tray with which I can read and drink my tea with a snack while in the bath.
Photographically I have scads of many lovely women in tubs. Here are two that happen to be sisters Julia and Virve Reid.
