How long has it been since you have experienced the
delight of kicking your feet in the air and feeling the
breeze swoosh the hair across your face as you
reached higher and higher on a swing?
Were you a daredevil as a child pushing your body
towards the sun, or did you prefer a more sedate ride?
Personally I loved both.
The gentle swing, letting my feet scrape the well-worn groove of earth beneath the timber seat and the eye-watering , nostril-flaring thrill of pushing the metal links to their limit.
Memories of happy times swinging in a park near my Grandparents came rushing to my mind as I viewed the lovely image for this post created by a wonderful local Sunshine Coast artist, Shelle Kennedy.
Doesn't it exude happpiness and light?
Can't you almost feel the air moving about you?
Thank you for the gift of your art Shelle and for the wonderful images and memories it evokes for me.
I'd love to hear about the last time that you enjoyed the gift of flying through the air on a swing.
Or perhaps you've recently enjoyed a shared experience with someone small who couldn't help but yell "Higher....Higher!" as you gently pushed their little back and they kicked their feet towards the sun.
