Find the time to play today...

Play is one of the highest spiritual forms of being. When we're in that state, we get lost in ourselves, which allows the mind to receive the message of the spirit. --Ellie Katz


I love being playful. Yes, life brings us serious challenges, but nothing lightens the spirit as being silly. I got that from my momma who, in the most horrendous situations, always finds a lighthearted comment to ease our little hearts. Her playful spirit is one of the qualities that I admire most in her and one quality that I try to emulate. The thing is that sometimes we, or others, take themselves too dam seriously. You know exactly what I mean? Add a little magic to your day and find the time to be silly.

Here's Ellie Katz waxing poetic about the importance of play. When you find yourself getting too serious about life -- keep Katz's words close your heart:

Playology is about waking up our senses, infusing our organs of seeing, hearing, smelling, touching, tasting-- and the higher cognitive senses as well, with the spirit of play. Play ignites creativity and spontaneity. Playing together leads to trust and cooperation.
