“Play like you live” ~ Performance advice from judge Harry Connick Jr to a contestant on American Idol.

I love to watch children play.

There is a graceful madness
in the creation
of new worlds.

Prairies of freedom.
Explosions of imagination.
Thrones of power.

What part of growing up
makes us forget
how to play?

  1. Cycling everywhere in my new city of Utrecht feels like playing, and as a result, my mean happiness level has gone up! Sometimes, swooshing around the corners on my bike, I almost feel like I’m flying (well, except when I’m being pelted with hail).
