Once time is a resource to be used, you start to feel pressure, whether from external forces or from yourself, to use it well, and to berate yourself when you feel you’ve wasted it.*
Every playground has two basic properties, which are two sides of the same coin: boundaries and contents.
Our perception of time alters when we are playful, rather than only being serious, with the contents and the limitations of our lives
Rather than something we possess as a commodity, time becomes something we inhabit.
