Go Play!


“It is a happy talent to know how to play,” the Universe mentioned by way of a fortune cookie.

I taped it to a piece of paper, drew a big blue circle around it and wrote, “So, what is play?”

“Have fun and honor your inner child,” the Universe responded. “Take some time to ask your inner child how do you feel? and what would you like to do? Plan an afternoon where you take your inner child on an outing, doing things that allow your inner child to emerge. Swing and slide at the park. Take an afternoon nap. Draw on the path with chalk. Or build a sandcastle.*”

  1. LOVE that fortune cookie message, and while the Girl with Death Mask (She Plays Alone) image certainly illustrates your post well, I pray your inner child’s feelings are totally in line with the Universe’s response! 😉
