I love swing sets. They may be simple but to me, they are one of the most freeing things on Earth. When I was a child, I would get on a swing, use my formidable core strength and just kick/push to a target in my mind’s eye. I’d feel the wind on my face, ruffling my hair and feel as if I were flying. As an adult, this hasn’t diminished. Often, I will drive by playgrounds that are void of swing sets and think what an abomination they are, a bastardization of what a playground should be. The see-saw, the jungle gym, even the slide, don’t make you feel free. And isn’t free what everyone should be?
