    I Won't Ever Outgrow The Playground Swings

    Last fall while I was in the mountains, was the last time I have been swinging. I was dressed up in my witch garb. My young friend Amber and I were out taking pictures of the pretty leaves and scenery when the swings in a public park called to me. It was dark and cold and I had...

    To Fly

    To sit on a swing and pump your legs back and forth. To feel the air on your face and thise butterflies in your stomach. The simple thrill. As we get older we too often just don't have the time to do things we enjoy. To often we forget simple fun. With cell phones and computers...

    Been A Long Time...

    I can't actually remember the last time I was on a swing set, swinging away, sometimes TOO high. I used to see how high I could go, when I would get to a point, sometimes above the bar, and start to freefall for a half-second until the chain jerked me back and almost threw me off...

    We haven't been to a party in a while

    and I miss it a bit... I fight with myself internally about it a lot but love it in the moment! Want to go back but I think I would love it if we just started back with a soft swap- I suck di€k and he gets his sucked... Time will tell.

    Scary

    When I was a kid one of my "uncles" (really a second cousin, I guess, since my Mom was an only child) had a house in the mountains (? hills?) around Sleepy Hollow. There was an old-fashioned swing made from an automobile tire tied to a thick rope and hung from a tree...

    My Wedding Day!

    I got to swing in my wedding dress with my maid of honor!  We have pictures and it was a blast.  Having the wedding in a park was a good move.  Swinging is freeing.  I don't know if it's because of childhood memories drifting back or just the feeling of...

    Almost Like Flying.

    Swinging back and forth, back and forth, back and forth... for hours. It seems redundant. Yes and No. True I'm just going back and forth but I'm also flying in the air, kind of. My favorite is when I'm really going fast, then I let go and centrifical force keeps me on the swing...

    Even In The Rain

    A few years back when I was on holiday in Cornwall there was a park near where I was staying. I loved the swings, so much so that when it poured down with rain outside I just chucked on a raincoat and made a dash towards them. I wasn't letting that weather stop me so there I was...
