Games People Play

They never say to you, 'What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?' Instead, they demand 'How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much does he weigh? How much money does his father make?'
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Some of the people I've talked to about reenactment don't understand why people get so involved. They often think they don't live in the real world. It's too bad they miss the point. I talked with several of the people doing the reenactment at the faire. While these two pointed out that certainly their game materials weren't representative of what actually existed, they were very knowledgeable about the roots of the game they were playing being in medieval times. Besides they knew how to ask the questions that really matter....

I found out today that I will be off from work for close to five weeks. So I'm asking the questions that really matters about this time, how can I use it to enrich my creativity and enjoy the sights/sounds and experiences I'm allowed in the healing period. I trust the universe will take care of the disability, healing and such (of course we filed the right paper work to help it along)...

I love the colors and intimacy of this photo, it was catching a lord and lady at the critical moment of play.

Are you asking the questions that really matter in the game of life?
