While perusing the many splendidly stocked shelves
at F-A-O Schwarz in New York City, a book caught my eye, “The Secret of Play” – written by Anne Pleshette Murphy. I was drawn to the attractive cover and that a toy store was touting the secret of play.
Engaging in an activity for enjoyment is certainly one that we need to allow time for not only as children, but as adults too. In a world where every ounce of time seems to be scheduled and accounted for, when we stop to play, all the secrets are revealed to inspire imagination and creativity.
What is your secret for balancing play in your life or for those that could benefit from a healthy play date?
