I can recall the first day we found this magical place.
It was ever so hot and the browning grass crunched beneath our feet. The sun shone hotter and brighter than most days and the humidity made me feel week.
As we approached through the field I could see the shining metal gleaming in the summer light. I could almost smell the rubber.
I began to get excited the closer we got and could barely control my squeals as I held my Grandsons hand as we walked towards the greatest adventure ever....we were going to the park! This was a new park and I had never been to it before. I had much more of a grown up feel to it with the climbers and equipment.
It was so hot that there was no one else in the park and my excitement rocketed as I became aware of our very own park getting closer with each step.
I could spin with no worries! I am a ware of the fact that I am an adult, but I indeed have the heart and soul of a child.
There was no little children there for me to hurt by accident and no adults to look in wonder and awe.
The first thing to catch my eye was this fabulous industrial tire swing that spun.
I LOVE SPINNING.
Parks were not like this when I was a child. I have always loved twirling around and swinging high, not to mention being a roller coaster and bungee jumping freak
That tire swing was freaking awesome and I spun and I spun with my husband and Step Daughter watching from a distance at the slide with the little one....he loved the park as well but not sure he was as excited as his Nana was.
I layed upon the tire on my back in an arch doing the crab with my arms and legs dangling below me. I could see Tom and Marilyn watching me and smiling when I could focus on the odd turn. They know I am special.
When I needed a rest from my manic spinning I set across the park to the other side. I had been feeling quite strong and creative at the time as I was taking Silk classes.
That is when I saw THE OTHER SWING.... It too was soooo amazing.
It was a giant weaved basket hung by four chains that you lay upon and swing very high.
I was feeling quite circus-y and swung so high and free the smile on my face could be seen shining bright white for miles.
The park may be one of my absolute favourite things, but now at the age of forty I find myself a bit shy to walk up to the park alone for a good spin.
I do not usually care what others think, but for some reason this feels different.
I do not want people to think I am freak..I mean weird is fine but not freakish
All I know is I would do almost anything for a brilliant tire swing like that of my own.
I love parking....I just want to break free!
So if you see a crazy faery in the park...no worries 'tis just Bubbles.
Faery kisses and much luvins xxx Hey...take a break and go for a swing...it is so very uplifting
