He writes stories of clowns, and stories of how to take life a little less seriously. He thinks we all need to be more playful.
Isn’t that great advice?
One important lesson he shared is highlighted in his post titled: Getting Your Hands Dirty
For me, a big part of engaging with my playful side has been learning to get my hands dirty, to stop worrying whether or not a project I am working on will end up completely perfect.
When children are at play, they are so completely present in the world that they don’t notice if they’re getting mucky or making a mess. I’m trying to learn to be like this too.
This blogger studies clowns and jesters. In his post named:How To Be An Everyday Clown, he writes:
Clowns have a freedom and unpredictability of spirit. They are willing to say, do, and be something different, taking the risk of being ridiculed.
One of the keys to being playful is having a freedom and unpredictability of spirit. In the midst of daily drudge and routine everyday clowns bring sparkles and smiles through a moment of unconscious silliness or spontaneous dancing.
Spontaneity is good, as is being a little unpredictable. Both traits will often encourage us to look at life a little differently.
This blog promotes playfulness. In fact, it’s the name of the blog: Be Playful.org
