Play is for everybody – not just kids. It makes us bloom inside with ideas, enthusiasm, courage and wonder. In play we cross boundaries that tame our everyday behavior and enter a realm of freedom and discovery. Within the hum and the drum of life the current of imagination is flowing . . . always. Right Here. Right Now. It tugs at dreary moments with an appealing warmth as if to say, “There is another way to be in this moment with this situation/feeling/experience. C’mon! I’ll show you!”
By following the impulse to play we entertain a restless spirit who longs for authentic, expansive experiences that lead us to unpredictable outcomes. We explore, experiment, make intuitive choices, engage with others in stretching the boundaries of self to include exuberant innovation as part of our life’s pattern. We energize the taproot to creative flow and benefit from the pleasure it provides. Play is for everyone!
