There's something about swinging that makes a person feel free. On a swing, they're weightless. One can fly into the clouds. I believe that some of the best dreaming in the world has been conducted on a swing.




The best swing set I ever went on was near San Luis Obispo. It's right on the sand, overlooking the ocean. It is certainly the most beautiful place to swing.




On a swing, you can be a kid again. You can scream and squeal and laugh because you can. The feeling of butterflies as you soar into the sky is the best feeling ever.




Go swing today. It'll be worth it.

Choices

I hate choices. Seriously. Give me six movies to choose from and I'm toast. Honestly. I can't make up my mind. After 9.4 rounds of Eenie-Meenie-Miney-Mo, I still can't decide. That's why I love Starbucks:

The whole purpose of places like Starbucks is for people with no
decision-making ability whatsoever to make six decisions just to buy one cup of
coffee. Short, tall, light, dark, caf, decaf, low-fat, non-fat, etc. So people
who don't know what the [heck] they're doing or who on earth they are can, for
only $2.95, get not just a cup of coffee but an absolutely defining sense of
self: Tall. Decaf. Cappuccino.
