Joy is in exploring different forms of play!! I'm definitely a believer in play fuelling one's creations, vitality and creativity. One of our favourite forms of play as a family are nature walks - the joy is in exploring a new mountain, a different walk and new environment. We always return home energised and rejuvenated! Dr Stuart Brown (author of Play: How it shapes the brain, Opens the imagination and Invigorates the Soul) explains that 'Life without play is a grinding, mechanical existence organised around doing the things necessary for survival. Play is the stick that stirs the drink. It is the basis of all art, games, books, sports, movies, fashion, fun and wonder. Play is the vital essence of life. It is what makes life lively.' Happy playing this weekend fabulous friends!! Sending you lots of love and joy xx
