The Simplest Freedom

One of the things that I miss the most?

Swinging.

The freedom that I felt as a child, as I sat on the seat and clung on to the chains, and kicked my legs back and forth, making myself go higher and higher.

It was such an intoxicating feeling.

I would kick off my shoes and feel at peace with myself and the universe.

Now if I get on a swing and get insta-motion sickness.

Such a simple pleasure that has had to be erased.

Anyone who has swing nearby and has the ability to accomplish the task - don't take it for granted.  Make sure to swing away some of your stress now and then.  Let me live vicariously through you!

Yes, swinging! We live next door to a park. I wonder if the swings are big enough for an adult? I may go try one!
