What we actually said: (how close were you to our thoughts?)

Hello Friends,

Being carefree is one of the essential parts of living. Play is an important as work.

The summertime connates images of freedom, running on the beach, alfresco dinners, moonlight walks, catching fireflies, lazy, hazy evenings by a fire-pit… all moments of enjoyment.

The beauty of play is that instant of inspiration and spontaneity when you ignite with fun and just let go.

It reminds us of being children – off from school – our brains at rest – running around till dinner.

We learn from playing. We remember not to take things so seriously… to get swept up in our imagination and relax into the enjoyment of “now”.
