It was the first one I have seen in over a decade. The merry-go-round was not in the best shape but my kids loved playing. I had to pry their fingers off of the struts to get them back home.
I had forgotten how much fun I had on those things as a kid. Now, they just stir up my vertigo.

Such is life….
You spin around full circle until it is time to get off. Things you enjoy, that you take for granted? They dissappear. What is left is a mere shadow of its former glory but the new joy does not recognize what the old has been, blinded by the here and now.
Ah, the metiphors to be found on a rusted out playground.
