GypsyMama has served up another Five Minute Friday prompt! That’s right, five minutes of all out, no-holds-barred, bare-faced, passion-pouring, writing without critical thought. Link up with the logo.
I always admired the girls and guys who could do a walk-over backwards. Their bodies were like noodles that could bend effortlessly from feet to hands and back over to feet again. So smooth, so graceful, so easy!
We had to have P.E. credits in high school, and thankfully we had a choice. One quarter I opted for tennis. One quarter I opted for gymnastics.
I knew I’d never be a member of the gymnastics team. I didn’t have the bone structure that made for a successful gymnast. But I still wanted to give gymnastics a try. I wanted to have a chance on the balance beam and (deep breath) the uneven parallel bars. So I enrolled in the class, and I did my best. And I had fun.
I learned that if I tried something new, I might even be able to do it. I might not be the best, most graceful gymnast. But it sure was thrilling to try.
As I recall, I liked the balance beam the best. And the most thrilling thing, was to do one of those backwards walkovers for my dismount!
