If one swings, one always like swing very high, so high that one can nearly get the sky. Every time if I am sitting on a swing, lot memories and fantasy are coming, as if I lived in a fairy tale world. I selected the extremly height of the swing, in order to the situation appears more unreal.

I sit on a swing, my eyes closed and swing forwards and back. The swing is arrangiert in a passage in approx. 5 m height, so that I look very small from the underground.
