Each human is born with play. As children, play is a default. It is the vessel through which we learn, grow and generate ideas. Play is there for us when we have a hard experience or question we need to process our way through. Through play, we experience the world, reaching the states of engagement, openness and safety.
As adults, play is equally important. It brings us joy. It breaks up each day bringing a clearing, release and completion to our tasks. It is an avenue through which we connect with others which has a strong potential to connect community. It is time spent tinkering, outdoors, creating ideas and replenishing resources. It is time away from consuming and time spent producing. What does your play look like?
