If there were no problems it wouldn’t be much fun.*
It is, therefore, this fluidity that presents us with an unavoidable challenge: how to contain the serious within the truly playful; that is, to keep all our finite games in infinite play.**
Problems can chase us into the protection of the known and familiar.
To discover whether a problem could become a possibility greater than a fix, we may need to set out for the open ground of the unknown and unfamiliar through the playfulness of our imaginations, an adventure we are more than capable of.
