Swing Set

Swing sets have fascinated me since I was small. I have always loved the idea of being able to fly as high as you wanted- uninterrupted by the confusion and noise of the realistic world that sits motionless below. When I was flying in the air I could think freely and be alive! I was a kid and I was the happiest kid in the world. But as you grow up, you must leave behind certain joys in favor of new experiences. So, while I lost many things that had brought me joy I gained new loves as well. But, one of the most important lessons I have learned about growing older is that while it is important to outgrow certain things and learn new loves- it is more important to remember to keep hold of those raw, beautiful loves which brought you your childhood.
