Back in the Swing of Things

It has been awhile since I blogged. I think I need to change my cell phone plan and start mobile blogging. Not posting does not mean I haven't had ideas. I just haven't had the time to blog them.

After seeing swings on trains today, I started thinking. Maybe swings on trains aren't safe, but what about rocking chairs? I know it sounds a little crazy, but if it was secured to the floor on a base and maybe tethered to the wall of the bus or train with some sort of spring or stretchy twine/cable/elastic it might be just crazy enough to work. I think they would be calming to grumpy commuters. Also, who hasn't see and heard a grumpy child on the bus or train? If parent could sit and rock said child, it would be good for all.

Rocking chairs on public transportation: Yeah? Nay?
