When was the last time you went out to play?

When was the last time you flew a kite, went roller skating, rode your bike through the neighborhood, or challenged a child in your life to a board game? When was the last time you skipped through a parking lot, hiked the hills with a buddy, or ran through the sprinklers in your underpants?

Now, in certain neighborhoods, privacy factors pending, you might draw the line at the sprinkler idea, but it is my firm belief that JOY is our birthright, and with there being so much joy in playtime, the only conclusion there is to come to, is that playtime is a necessity…which runs deep, and far beyond our childhood years.

Albert Einstein once said, “Play is the highest form of research.”
