Spinning, spinning, spinning

A Simpler Time

Ever feel like your life is one big running exercise? You try to hurry, you do, but you feet feel like they are in cased in mud or cement? Do you feel like your world is spinning out of control? Do you feel like you’re on one of those old-fashioned hand-operated spinning wheels, and someone keeps make it go,go,go?

Merry-go-round

Why not make that spinning feeling work for you?

No, I’m not talking about taking a spinning class, although they are great exercise, and a way to interact with others.

Except, that is a lot of work, I’m talking about pure enjoyment here.

Like spinning around and around until you were so dizzy you didn’t know down from up?

When was the last time you did something silly and entertaining?

Today is Top Spinning Day, why not go outside, or in a spacious room and spin your body like a top?

The ensuing laughter will brighten the rest of your day.

If you’re leery about falling after spinning, and sometimes getting back up is often  real interesting. Try spinning in an office chair. Isn’t that their purpose, to entertain us while we’re working?

Babies do it,

office workers do it (when the boss is out of the office) and make it a contest,

You can do it too.

If you don’t want think becoming a human top is your idea of fun, how about making a spinning top?

Have you tried twirling and spinning recently?

Did you ever play on one of those parent (or older kid) operated merry go-rounds?

Did you have a favorite spinning top as a child?

In case you forgot (or didn’t know) this month is part of a 31 day challenge to blog about the same subject or theme for thirty-one (31) days.  It is also part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.
