As soon as I saw the latest Illustration Friday topic “childhood,” I immediately thought of the summer evenings I’d spend on the swing in the backyard. I could spend hours swinging, trying my hardest to swing as high as I could. I’d pretend that if I could swing high enough, my feet could touch the sky. That feeling of soaring through the air was the best. Some of my other favorite childhood memories include riding my bike around and around the yard, even as the sun went down. Sometimes there was a baseball game on the radio in the background. Sometimes it was music on the radio. I loved spending as much time outside as possible. I kind of miss the days when summer seemed to last forever.
