This year has been challenging (to say the least) as we faced a constant unique existential crisis. We have been thrust into war, and like drafted soldiers we learned hard lessons fast. Safety is paramount. But safety alone is soul-crushing without sanity, without laughter, without play, without pretend. Joy is essential to our survival and finding pleasure in the simple is a shrewd skill more in demand than ever. I made it a goal of mine this year that while I was serious about protecting myself and others from Covid-19, I would also take my playtime more seriously, that is, make time to connect with and continue cultivating my inner child. It sure makes hunkering down a lot more bearable.
