Playground – July 29


I’ll tell you a story…about how all the world is a playground, but all the people have forgotten how to play.” Lucy goes to the playground expecting to…well…play, but instead finds folx engaged in anything but. Is play an end in itself, or must one track progress toward a goal for an activity to be meaningful? Or is it perhaps best to just sit on a bench and not engage at all?
