Play | The Subtitle
How to incorporate both the simplicity and the power of this book in a few lines? Here goes trying.
As book #10 in an (as of now…) 11-book series, we’re getting towards the end. Shouldn’t things bet getting harder? Heavier? More important?
It’s becoming more and more important that they’re not becoming harder or heavier. That’s just it. The goal is a lightness, an almost dreamlike state, a playful youthful way of going about life as if you were 7-years old and didn’t have a care in the world.
But we do have “cares in the world.” Can we still achieve a state of play if we have cares? Worries? Mortgages? To do lists?
