Play: A Deep Subject

Post by nekot » Wed Mar 28, 2007 9:39 am

Perusing around this sections of PP, I figure I can post some journal entries here? They are not prose, poetry, story, or epic....more like random thoughts. If inappropriate, please advise. :bow:

Journal entry from: 4/21/03.


"Learning to play again is foundational to experiencing the fullness of life.

What is play? Freedom. Freedom of expression. Freedom of movement. Freedom of thought. Swings and creeks. Daisies. Bracelets in the sun.

Play has no time boundaries. Play has no schedule. Play flows and ripples like a creek with various dips, turns, waterfalls, and rate of flow. Sometimes it flows quickly and then gently slows into a quiet, relaxing swimming hole. Continue down the creek and the flow picks up speed again. Play is not stagnant. Play is open to unlimited possibilities.

Play is a child's work, a child's occupation. It is a child's calling and vocation. Play develops neural circuitry within that child's system that is crucial to the mental, emotional, and physical health and wellness of that child. I believe in neurogenesis. Maybe...as I learn to play again, my system will respond with the genesis of youthful, exuberant, fresh, joyous, satisfied, stimulating, flexible, intuitive neural circuitry.

My....play is a deep subject."

Interesting thoughts. Yesterday I substituted as the attendance secretary at the school I tought in for 13 years. It was so much fun - I felt like I was playing all day - so can play be work?
This above all to thine own self be true.
