Me, @ Lake Lucille, Wasilla, AK ( this is at around 11 pm )
Why jump? There are so many pictures already out there of people in mid-air. What makes the jump picture special? Well, let me count the ways.....
1. Jumping reminds me of high jump, one of my favorite activities when I was a kid. Though I cannot anymore jump way above my head ( justification: I am way taller now) without injuring myself, but the act of jumping still gives fun! When we were kids, I saw jumping as a competitive physical activity. I should not touch the rope or the stick before anyone else in high jump! Now, several decades later, jumping is merely for fun, a celebration that I still can jump :)
2. For pure fun :)
Here are some more jumping pictures we did while we were in Alaska.

Jumping for me is also a symbol of not simply waiting for those elusive dreams to happen, but a symbol of readiness and of fitness to explore the stars in your dreams.
