Swinging Art

“Waiting To Swing”
30” x 24”

If you’re like me, then you remember playing on the swings.

Pumping your legs and trying to go so high that you could touch the sky. You remember, don’t you? Yeah, you do 🙂

Remember how adults would say that you were too big for the swings, and that you were gonna break it? And then they’d tell you to get up, so the little kids could swing. And you’d look around and there weren’t any little kids in sight. Yeah, you remember. Me too 🙂

On hot summer afternoons, we’d take turns standing up on the seat and swing high, our knees slightly bent, as we arched our body back, as if we were flying! Us catching a breeze.

We had some of our best conversations, our most innovative ideas and arguably our best thoughts while hanging out at the swings.

Even now, all these decades later, I still love swings. You too?
