I believe that we all need to play, not find time to play, maybe if we can fit it in somewhere – we absolutely need to play. It is essential, like food and water and air. Playing nourishes the soul, allows us time to discover little surprises about ourselves, to uncover our true nature and it is fun.
When I was about eleven I had to stay after school and wait for my mom to collect us after work. I was so jealous of all the other kids who got to go home straight after school. The problem was that I realised that because I was almost a teenager I didn’t have that many days left to play and I really wanted to get in all the playing I could do before I got too old to play. This makes me laugh now because I never stopped playing! I still have a playroom – it’s just called a ‘studio’.
