You just gotta love [old, neon] green converse, bad photo quality, and [fat] dancer calves, right? ;} Well, you would think that it should be easy to get a good picture of your feetsies while your moving, but, uh, wrong. This was the best I could do--I sense there is no photography career in my future. o.O [though these were taken with my iPhone so maybe I shouldn't complain...]
Anyways, these lovely photos are from one of the days my family and I went to the park. I'm too big to climb the rock thing in the playground--*le sigh* big kid probs--and I'm too tall for the monkey bars [insert awkward vision of self with hands on monkey bars as I walk across]. So I went directly to the swings.
I felt alone, as I sat down on the swing beneath the shade of the nearby trees. I felt peaceful and calm and--not so alone when the rest of my family sat down on the swings too. They didn't deter the mood though. It feels nice to swing. To push off the ground and see how high off the ground you can get. [but never and I mean never, jump off. you may end up "fracturing" your arm...]
Have you ever tried to remove your over thinking mind from its wonderful world of contemplating, and just sat back to watch the world around you? To enjoy and embrace the feelings and emotions you may only feel once? Normally, I don't *try* to do this. Once my mind is thinking about something, it doesn't usually stop. But there have been time when I've been able to just shut it off, lean back in my chair--or cling to the swing's chains--and just watch things happen around me.
I love to watch the world moving around me, as I calmly swing back and forth. It's nice, to be able to remove yourself from your situation and just watch and listen, feel but not be a part of. Sometimes it's nice to just close your eyes and feel the movement of the world happening around you.
And it's always
nice amazing when you get a text from your bestie. That always seems to brighten my day. ;)
Do you have a favorite playground activity? :)
thanks for reading. <3
