Finding Delight in Dedark

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 11:15:46 +0000

(image)

(image) So, Dedark. So, it's like the dark, but it's not. It's dedark. And whatever it really is, we can be sure of one thing - it's not a happy place. And, what makes it even sadder is that we're the one's who are imagining it into being. Dedark.

I'm only conjecturing here, but I'm guessing that if we get deeply enough into defining dedark we'll discover exactly where the delight shines brightest.

A What? Again?

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 11:12:39 +0000

(image)

(image) A What?! Note the looks of near hysteria, the helpless laughter of utter confusion, the reaching of a new state of mind beyond consciousness as these sweet young folk are captured at the moment of cross-passing, note especially the joy-stricken sharing of the extreme silly.

“Adult playfulness and its relationship to good jokes, subjective happiness, and depression

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 11:01:14 +0000

Can't blame 'em, actually. Humor-wise, sometimes a little self-defeat, sometimes a little beating up on someone or something else is what we need. I guess some of us aren't the same. Maybe the jokes we tell each other are more fun when we seem aggressive or self-defeated

I decided to disagree with Hermann Hesse, for the fun of it

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 11:06:49 +0000

(image)

(image) There's fun in them thar hugs, in them huggins and kissins and packings and arriving together. Sure, the joys may be small, but they're also shared. And a shared joy, my dear Hermy, can be even more joyful.

The Playful Practice: Maybe the Most Politically Relevant Thing You Can Do Is To Keep on Playing

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 11:02:12 +0000

(image)

(image) That's also a what you might call a "Playful "Practice".

We just play anyway.

We don't stop. We don't argue with ourselves or anyone else's. We let ourselves have fun. Deep fun, of course. We play openly, lovingly, fearlessly, empathetically, emphatically, naturally. We play completely.

A Couple More Reasons Why Bob Gregson is Such an Important Icon for Purveyors of Public Playfulness

Wed, 15 Mar 2017 10:05:14 +0000

(image)

(image) And this piece of art, or perhaps all the pieces in an exhibition of the Gregson oeuvre, is something that calls people to play. With art. With their own artistic sensibilities. Perhaps even with each other.

Bernard Louis De Koven, designer of Funny Games

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 11:06:17 +0000

(image)

(image) So, I'm thinking about my life, about what I've been doing, contributing. And it all of a sudden seemed to me that the funny games thing, that me as a designer and teacher of them, is like really what I do, totally what I want to be known for.

Carnival as Culture – Brian Eno

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 11:12:41 +0000

(image)

(image) Carnival is good when it lets people present the best part of themselves, and be, for a little while, as they'd like to be all the time. Carnival is good when it gives people the feeling that they're really lucky to be alive right here and now. Carnival is good when it leaves people with the feeling that life in all its bizarre manifestations is unbeatably lovely and touching and funny and worthwhile.
