Ahhh, to frolic with jubilant mirth and delight for no other reason than just for the pure pleasure of it. Imagine that!!
Growing older often stifles our playful spirit. Our wisdom makes us cautious. We wonder what others will think of our actions. We surround ourselves with little black clouds of doubt. Can we find that passion and exuberant feeling again?
Just imagine…pure joy! Inspired by a photograph of my daughter Emily, age 15 leaping and playing — just for the fun of it.
