Here are a couple thoughts that kept surfacing during our week away from the “real” world:
1-There aren’t a lot of “things” required to make a human happy.
2-We need to play more. Not just the kids, but big kids too. “Play” = an activity undertaken for enjoyment without any practical purpose. Play means doing something while focusing on the means rather than on the end goal. It’s good for creativity and learning and it’s good for the soul.
