Gotta Get Free

 it was a transcendental moment. i was communing with the sublime.

my son was on the swing next to mine and i knew he was safe, so i kicked my feet up. i pumped my legs harder and i went higher and higher on the swing. i looked up and saw buds on the tree above my head. 5 0’clock traffic was passing by just outside the fence of the playground.

and i felt lifted. of course, literally. but also spiritually. i said to myself “God is smiling down on this simple moment.”  i was not fretting or working or conspiring. i was outside with an innocent little person just being in the moment.

an older lady passed by on the sidewalk and said, “watching you makes me want to swing”. i replied by telling her that she should just to feel free.
