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
