On a Swing and a Prayer

Even now I’m firmly in a my mid-fifties, I still love to swing whenever I get the chance. Sadly I no longer fit as easily as I used to, clumsily wedging myself onto the swing seat, middle-aged thighs pressing tightly against the creaking chains… But even so, once I’m comfortably positioned I just love that forceful feeling of freedom it brings, swinging strongly back and fore in the clean fresh air with wide open skies high above you 🙂

Holding on tight you give one big push off from the ground to begin, swinging your legs back as you lean slightly forward to move back, then pushing your legs out in front and lying back looking up to the sky to swing forward. I love the natural rhythm it brings, that simple yet effective repetition of increased movement that moves you faster and higher each time, hair streaming in the breeze. And I love the flow of the air catching my breath and the latent laughter that bubbles up from my soul every time… swinging for me is always a sheer joy ❤
