My Place

Standing on the beam
Tumbling on the floor
Flipping off the bleachers
Sounds like fun, right?


This is so much more than fun.
The flips,
The handsprings,
This is life.

Looking at the people working
Trying to get their transitions right
You can’t see anything but youth and vitality
Tumbling is my pulse

Just standing in a gym
Can heal any wound I have
Going to my gym is better than going shopping.
My gym is the root of my mojo.
It is my home.
It is…
