Things I Miss: Nonsensical Imaginative Play

I had considered writing about this in some length but then this Calvin & Hobbes strip showed up in my Google Reader and well…

… you know what they say about a picture being worth a thousand words. Yeah… That and I’m pretty pooped. Its been a long week month year week. I remember having so much fun just running around the back yard pretending to be someone I’m not fighting beings that weren’t there. Taking damage that slowed me down. Taking refuge high atop the pecan trees to size up the enemy’s lair just over the hilltop. Does growing up really have to mean those days are gone? What is it about the process of growing into our own selves that causes us to leave behind the selves we once had fun being?
