Do you remember how much you looked forward to recess when you were a kid? How about a trip to the park with your favorite play friends? Any object in recess-land became a portal into vast kingdoms bounded only by imagination. Reality was only checked by the lunch aid and the bell. Between these two horizons lay the entire universe of possibilities.
Well, as "grown-ups" we often forget to take that all-important recess. We forget to look forward to the very events whose ending we dread. We relegate play to the world of never-never land and leave imagination behind as a tool that kindergartners use to grasp the real world.
Our virtual playground is a place that we can look forward to visiting and dread leaving. The only difference is now we set the rules and we define the boundaries. No more lunch aid or bell. Suppose that we chose not to bind our minds by any rules save the rule that only the best of us can be shown. In such a place, the possibilities are boundless . . .
