A licence to play
Something everyone should have, at least metaphorically
I believe a sense of play is massively important but that it can easily be overlooked or undervalued. We live in a world that’s going at a million miles an hour with important and urgent things zipping by or carrying us along. Where is the time for play? And isn’t it just frivolous?
“The opposite of play is not work. It’s depression.”
— Brian Sutton-Smith
This quote gets to the heart of it for me. A playful life is one of joy. And that’s something we should aspire to give everyone.
