Skip, skip, walk

He was 8 or 9 years old & he was walking back his classroom. He was on his own. Suddenly he broke out into a skip! Yes, he skipped the rest of the way to class. It was free & easy & it just looked right. It made me smile.
Now, Im pretty sure that if I started skipping here & there, I would just look awkward. On top of that, most of you would probably laugh at me. We are often so moulded by what people think of us... by how they will judge us. Who knows, perhaps if this boy's friends were around the skipping may never have happened?
But today, he skipped.... like he didn't have a care in the world! How fab! Something in me leapt. Something in me wanted to skip too. Next time you see me I just may be skipping!... laugh at me if you like... I wont mind a bit.
(join me if you dare)


  1. THIS makes me want to jump up and down and shout HOORAY THANK YOU JESUS FOR FREEDOM!! I love that He created us to skip! You're blog is inspiring me to live in my Freedom instead of just talking about it. SKIP SKIP SKIP! I'll skip with you!

  2. Ah it makes me remember a time in my life not too long ago that skipping and humming in public were second nature to me... I can feel it brewing to perhaps overflow again soon. xx Bernie
    PS Luuurv the drawings. How do you do them??

  3. I am hooked on your art. But I think that happened already 30 years ago!! Still your faithful admirer... all the way over in New York.
