The day before leaving New York to come South, I hurled myself straight into denial about everything left undone and marched straight up to the Met to see the fabulous Christmas tree and Nativity scene. All of a sudden those things left undone hardly seemed to matter.
We hear a lot about the importance of “play,” whatever that means to you–reading, looking at art, doing a puzzle, swatting a tennis ball–and how it refreshes and recharges you.
Just seeing this beautiful scene (and the JAR jewelry exhibit after – but I’ll talk about that later) was so inspiring that it completely energized me. I was more focused, less frazzled, and happier. So simple, and such a blessing. Why do I so often forget it? I’ll make remembering it a resolution for 2014.
In the glorious lull after this most glorious season, I’d love to hear about how you “play,” and how it enhances your life.
Merry Christmas and love, Moi
