once upon a woman at play

by Kim Simon


“Play lies outside the antithesis of wisdom and folly, and equally outside those of truth and falsehood, good and evil… It has no moral function.”(Huizinga, J.).

I don’t PLAY in public.  I am playful in public and I play games in public, but I rarely immerse myself for sustained periods, in the freedom of mind and deep understanding I experience in PLAY.

And yet…

PLAY nourishes me, I get lost in it and it is where I find myself.
