Are You Playing or Are You Dead?

We learn to be pessimistic and cynical. We learn to hide our feelings. We learn to get scared for more than a moment.We crowd out the toys and songs and games we were originally blessed to know.

We forget about play. That wonderful bubbling feeling that pours danger and excitement on everything we can see.Of course, there are exceptions. Rock stars.

Sergey Brin, Scarlett Johanssen, etc. They get to still play when they want.But you can be an exception also.Sergey Brin started off poor as shit. He was a janitor in Stanford’s math department until he solved an ancient formula on the chalkboard.Scarlett Johanssen lived in and sang in the orphanage until that rich bald guy adopted her.But they played.
