Here is a brilliant account of how to hold on to a little bit of that playfulness you enjoyed as a kid.
“we almost only played outdoors when we were little, grouping together with neighbourhood kids. I remember playing cricket in the road, and famous-five-inspired adventures in the dell, narrating as we played, primarily around making a foresty shelter and foraging for food and finding treasure. I still talk to myself as I walk or dance-run, but it tends to be about the next things on my work to-do list. And I still forage for shiny or earthy things on the pavement, embracing my inner-magpie and enjoying a free alternate form of non-stop, non-shop shopping.”
