collage: girl + bird jumping rope

Jumping rope is probably one of the best and grueling exercises. I had forgotten how tiring it was until I had to do it as part of circuit training class I took awhile back, where you had to skip rope boxer style. Argh!... how can a childhood toy be so cruel? Well this collage neglects the gruel factor and focuses on the idealized childhood memory of skipping rope... when it was more nonchalant and carefree. So carefree in fact, I had to add a birdie friend in there to join her.

Oh - this brings back fantastic memories - I loved jumping rope as a child. Receiving a jump rope for my birthday is one of my first clear childhood memories!
