Play and recreation are vital to life, to a productive, complete, responsive, and healthy life. There is much research to support that statement. However, play and recreation are deadened when our bodies hurt, and perhaps our bodies hurt when we don't take the time to REcreate. Without this elemental space, dreams fade and visions are strangled. Change your mind; sometimes it's not about finding more time--it's about changing the way we think about the time use.
