Play is the Medicine Man
You’re not designed for office life.
You’re not designed to just sit there, You’re a hunter gatherer, dammit!
That urge to go out there goes back a long way. You need to feel the four winds.To tell stories around a shared camp fire. To see the stars that will be famous for more than 15 minutes. To leave the hubbub, humdrum and hoo-ha behind. To listen to the stream trickle on it’s way. To go to places 4x4’s only go in commercials. To put some distance between you and your work. To forget everything for a while. To make some molehills out of mountains.
Play is best when not done to a deadline.
Play is a multivitamin.
Play is de-tox.
Play is head yoga.
Play is the natural enemy of stress.
Play is good.
Play is great.
Play is brilliant.
Play is splashing in puddles, climbing mountains and riding across them.
Play is pointless juvenile and fun And frankly, all the better for it.
Work is complicated.
Play is simple.
