Pirouette

When I was in college there was a women's gymnastic team. One time I was walking to or from class on campus and some of the girls on the gymnastics team were out for a run. When they ran by me one of the girls leapt into the air and did a pirouette, a 360 degree spin, landed on her feet and kept running. It was a simple move but it was just so spontaneous and beautiful... It was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.

That must have been cool to see!

She probably was sweet on you! ;)

I can still see it in my mind's eye. I saw a lot of nice moves in gymnastics, but this one was most pure.

Don't think she was trying to impress me... She was just full of life. She did it again about ten paces later.
