in our quest to create some playful imagery with cats as the central theme for the playDAO, @pablomuralo and @Vemuri21 are using sketches as a medium

we could also use hand shadows to tell a story. does anyone here with puppetry or such skills want to join the playground?

does the desire to play begin through implicit inspiration from within or explicit instruction from the outside?

if you鈥檙e a child or can harness your inner child, you just need a nudge before you start cartwheeling 馃じ馃徎

if you鈥檙e an adult, you need to thaw before you play 馃コ

when you're born, that first scream you let out is celebrated as a sign of life. children play around with sounds until they learn the structured pattern of language.

play outside of the norm and explore a greater variety of sounds not just like singers but also like animals!

as a full-grown adult, you probably struggle to toggle play mode on and off. what is the easiest way to start to play, something that you can jump into with a snap of your fingers?

ps. online/digital games don't count

playing with memories and sharing them with another human is better than carrying the burdened of memories in isolation. while we can play alone, sharing the activity, the energy, that spirit with others makes it exponentially more fun!

鈥榟ow can i have fun right now?鈥 gets me into a playful spirit no matter what. i turned the mourning of my uncle's death into a playful activity. unable to sleep, i called a friend over and regaled her with stories of his life while making a montage tribute from old family photos

Almost all creativity involves purposeful play.

the things you find when your basement floods and you have to spend the whole day salvaging the reservoirs of nostalgia鈥

work is stressful and people often burn out. but what if i told you, you can actually work even harder if your actions are born from the spirit of playfulness?

observe any child or animal at play and one may even call them serious. a child trying to build a sand castle or a kitten stalking it鈥檚 prey are both being playful. in nature, everything is play. and the stakes are more often than not, dead serious - life and death.

The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable.
