Although Play is not only a human quality, as most of the mammals also play, humans are the most playful creatures. Play is indeed our primary tool to learn how to live, to explore both our possibilities and our boundaries, to develop fundamental skills for survival and for dealing with the unknown.
As kids we naturally are playful, a means for discovering ourselves, the surrounding and the others. While growing, we tend to disconnect from this inherent quality, especially due to the modern lifestyle of western civilization.
But at the end of the day everything is Play, sometimes more and sometimes less serious.
We play with identities, roles, ideas, believes, choices, language, personalities; we need this quality in order to go through life and allow ourselves to change and let go when necessary.
Living Life as a Play is an ultimate and deeply challenging achievement.
Where to start? Or better said, how to restart?
