  1. The photo took my breath away...
    remember the time I was about six or seven
    and got the swing that looked like that
    and all of a sudden realized how high
    I was...
    great take on the prompt !
    Peace

  3. I have never witnessed anyone actually do a complete 360 loop on a swing but, I have seen some kids at recess come close. Now, as a teacher, that takes MY breath away! :)

  4. Tom, I was the kid who tried hard to touch the sky. Fearless. When I swung with the youngest, I felt queasy going too high. lol
