Tabletop Olympics

(image) One of the first of the "Junkyard Games" I developed, shortly after the book was published, turned out to be a game I wound-up calling "Tabletop Olympics."

Bitterness, Sweetness, and Bittersweetness

Fri, 26 May 2017 11:09:51 +0000

There is a Sweetness in Bernie’s life that shows up in my imagination as a small, slightly goofy, and often mischievous creature sitting just above his right, and sometimes left, shoulder. Sweetness is an angel and a devil combined, the dappled color of a turning fall leaf, and he whispers “Let’s play!” and “Oooo, let’s try that!” and “Come on, let’s go there!” into Bernie’s ear every day.

(image) But there were other kinds of games that we called New when we were calling New Games new. Games that weren’t so manifestly loving. Like the dread game of Tweezly-Wop

Competition is a kind of cooperation. Just not as kind.

(image) So there's me and this kid. Say, 8 years old. We're playing a board game. A strategy game. The kind only one of us can win.

The Group Loop – the thing’s the game

Mon, 22 May 2017 11:11:06 +0000

(image)

(image) The thing I came up with I originally called it the “Group Loop,” and a bit later, the “Danger Band," - why "Danger Band" will become self-evident a bit later in this post.

The lovers of playfulness. The playfulness of lovers.

Fri, 19 May 2017 11:06:06 +0000

(image)

(image) I feel something very much love when I see acts of playfulness. Even when it's between animals, or children, or animals and children, or parents and children (human and other), or strangers, even - having one of those light, chance encounters. And especially when it's between lovers.

Play a little, talk a little, play a little, talk a little, play, play, play, talk a lot, play a little more

(image) We experienced the theater of it all, the poetry of it all, and it made us think about bigger things, like poems do

Playing together, we become transformed

Tue, 16 May 2017 11:15:02 +0000

(image) Playing together, dancing together, making music together - we become transformed. Individually, we become more complete, more completely ourselves. Collectively, we become more than ourselves.

(image) joy can never be held in or tethered — it can only live if we release it, and it is within this release that my freedom will be found
