Such Great Heights

Saturday night, after the football game, Melissa, Jordan and I attended their Nottingham Country neighborhood block party. It was a perfect Texas fall evening. With the band playing classic hits from the late 70s, early 80s, we swung.

Jordan showed us that he wasn’t afraid to display his daredevil swing jumping skills. I wish I could jump like this, but I am too afraid of broken ankles.
Still, the swinging was welcomed temporary respite from the sinking feeling that I have been maintaining that I can only relate to being 18 years old and holding my head against a brick wall outside of the Morris Center. Talking with my forehead pressed against brick, that is the best way to describe how I have been feeling lately.
So the swinging in the open air was quite nice.
And as always, happiness too is having a cute puppy to welcome me home.
