I had an experience recently that proved to me how “letting our inner child out” can really help us as adults. I was at the park with my ladyfriend and our dogs. She said “Lets go swing on the swings”. I immediately said no way!! I hadn’t been on a swing since I was a little kid and a 62 year old man on a swing is going to look ridiculous and “not cool”. Well she talked me into it and for those 5 minutes or so that I was on the swing I felt this amazing joy that I haven’t felt in years. Try to remember what it felt like as a child going outside to play and what type of activity you enjoyed. Even as adults we can still do some of those activities and get that joyous feeling once again.
Remember the swing?
when to play was the thing?
up we’d go
our hearts would know
the joy of the flow
our groins would squeal
at the pleasure we’d feel
we’d feel at ease
in the breeze
until our mothers would say
come in for dinner!
Better than vintage wine! By the way I enjoyed your description of intimacy on the other thread to which I did not respond in my effort to not respond to every single post (I am not happy with seeing my name over and over again, from top to bottom of the list of threads…. anita anita anita anita…. anita anita anita.)
