You are frozen between action and worry. You think, if I jump on there I will look silly, childish, or maybe even get hurt. You wonder what others will think if you make a fool of yourself. You fidget, put your hands in your pockets, and watch it go around again, and again…and again. You look forlornly at those on the carousel, and say to yourself, “Why can’t I be like that?”
You come back every day to watch, you are drawn to the carousel by a mysterious force. One day, something inside you snaps. You suddenly leap onto the merry-go round! You are beside yourself with joy. You cannot believe how much fun this is. You ask yourself, “Why did I wait this long?”
As you look around, you notice all the others who were on the carousel before you are gone. You find out they have all moved on to create new merry-go rounds, spreading the word. As you ride the carousel you see many forlorn faces in the crowd, and you wave them on with all your might. Get on the ride!
