'Let's Play Today' is a Limited Edition archival quality fine art print of an original artwork by Kim Miatke (Melbourne, VIC). © Kim Miatke
Possum? Dog? Cat? No, it was a child! My sweet Matilda digging through the recycle bin to find a big container. Curiosity was killing me so I sneakily observed what was she was up to like a 'Super Spy' from behind curtains.
Upon investigation I found Matilda filling up empty 3L milk bottles with water and creating a river along the curb watching stones and leaves float towards the drain. So simple, yet this 'play', created so much delight.
When did 'play' stop being the goal of each day? When did I forget how to delight in the 'simple'?
Matilda's sweet simple delight in water flowing challenged me. It challenged me this week to make 'play' a priority in my day. To stop being busy, to stop being serious, to stop feeling like I need to solve the problems of the world, to stop needing to be productive, to stop needing things to have 'purpose'.
When 'play' is embraced, I remember the joy of why I do what I do. It changes my perspective on life.
Play, fun and delight should be an ingredient in my everyday. Each day since I have made 'play' a priority. Frivolous, fantastic, fabulous fun.
Painting just for fun, not for a purpose.
Day dreaming about far off wonderful places.
Delighting in the beautiful world around me.
Tickle fights with my kids.
Silly ridiculous conversations with Michael.
Licking the spoon.
Eating ice-cream straight out of the tub.
Throwing leaves on each other.
Stopping for milkshakes on the way home from school.
Telling jokes to each other (my kids are hilarious).
Throwing gold leaf around like confetti.
Hey friends, 'let's play today' and everyday. Let's never forget to play. Play changes me. Will join me in the challenge to 'Play TODAY' and everyday?
