Seesaw Memories

The quest for balance

Every child loves a see-saw, right? Not me.

I always felt afraid when lifted high on the see-saw, my feet unable to reach the ground. I also hated the other half of the experience. Hitting the dirt too hard, the jolt running up my legs.

Even as a child, I wanted balance. That place between too high and too low.




Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
