I Really Want To Swing

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 62 People

    Really think the swing is one of the purest,

    simplest, most meditative things ever invented. Even when you're pushing a loved one. Maybe their availability should be expanded beyond playgrounds, to include home, work and places of worship? Of course, there are "clearance issues" on the inside. :)

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
