Playful moments

My advice to the person suffering from lack of time and apathy is this: Seek out each day as many as possible of the small joys.*
(Hermann Hesse)

Each sensory organ, each motor function can be harnessed to the production of flow.**
(Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)

It isn’t the best job in the world but
You notice the smallest elements
That give you joy
And you repeat,
Stretch and
Repeat:

Your real work is play.^

(*Herman Hesse, quoted in Maria Popova’s Brain Pickings: Tiny Perfect Things.)
(**From Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow.)
(^From Austin Kleon’s Keep Going.)
