Widely Enthusiastic about Little Things

Copyright 2019 by R.A. Robbins

“I still get wildly enthusiastic about little things…

I play with leaves.

I skip down the street and run against the wind.”

Leo F. Buscaglia

Do Not Forget to Play

Do not forget to play in life

and really enjoy it.” 

  —Eileen Caddy

 


 

I believe that creating art is about play and having fun. 

Today’s art is “Over the Mountains, Across the Plains, to Grandma’s House We Go.”  This is a playful piece depicting a family’s adventures of driving cross country to visit Grandma in Florida for Christmas — and her response to their being late.  It is available for sale in the Espirational Gallery.

“When we engage in what we are naturally suited to do, our work takes on the quality of play and it is play that stimulates creativity.”

This is the real secret of life

“This is the real secret of life—

to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now.

And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

~ Alan W. Watts

Play is Not Over There

“Play isn’t something separate from the daily grind of life. It is not something to finally get to when work ends. Rather, play, like music, is a force that we feel in our bones and that whispers in our heart. As kids demonstrate, play is not over there, but forever here and now.”

~ Vince Gowmon

Let’s Play!

Copyright 2013 by R.A. Robbins

When is the last time you actually played?  I’m talking with wild abandon here.  Like a child.  Not worrying about the cares of the world, just having fun.

This month let’s play.  Let’s pump our legs on a swing to see how high we can go.  Let’s color outside the lines.  Let’s just have fun.

If you have trouble letting go of adults rules, shoulds, shouldn’ts and have to’s  our daily posts will help you with that.  There might be games, songs, arts and crafts, even a few surprises.

So join us every day this month and let’s play!
