A Passion for… Play



“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” – Proverb


We live in a stressful world

Where everything is demanded now

No time to stop

The phone rings

Email dings

Messages buzz

Texts nag

Stop the noises!

We have a passion for play

And it is gnawing at us


“And the turtles, of course…all the turtles are free, as turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be.” – Dr. Seuss, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories


Yesterday the passion gnawed right through the ropes

And freed us.

It was a beautiful day

Perfect for some play

An adventure

A walk through the local woods

The Great Eastern Pingo Trail




Ancient ice age holes filled with water

And mud

Mud is good for play

Perhaps you will reveal your true identity

Down in the swamp

Away from work

So go on

Laugh, giggle, titter, lol, rofl (actually that could get you very muddy)

Whatever you call play

Have at it




Then return home


And ready to tackle the stress

Head on




“How well I know with what burning intensity you live. You have experienced many lives already, including several you have shared with me- full rich lives from birth to death, and you just have to have these rest periods in between.” – Anaïs Nin
