Words of wisdom.
Play is without purpose. It is how we engage with our bodies, minds, each other, the world — for the fun in it, the joy of it. Even if we were playing with money, truly playing, it is not so much for the money as it is for the freedom from money, for a connection to community. Even when we are playing to win, the real victory is in being part of, or just bearing witness to, a moment of shared transcendence.
I like the fact that he mentions that play can even be things that we think of as being the antithesis of play–like money–as long as we come to it with the right attitude.
