Most people relax by themselves, maybe a nap on a comfy couch, or if you’re lucky, at the beach listening to the waves. As a child, one of my favorite ways to relax was to sit on our swing from a huge oak tree in our front yard. From the swing I overlooked the swamp just a short way from the tree. That may sound an unpleasant view to some. To me, I loved it, watching the red winged blackbirds on the reeds, and dragonflies all different sizes and colors. Other birds and butterflies also stopped to visit the swamp. The swing represented freedom and slowly flying back and forth, was relaxing to me.
