• Play and pure foolishness

    Given that inspirational or thought-provoking quotes are included in each individually wrapped Sweet Muse brownie, it is understandable that occasionally people ask me what my favorite quote is. Frequently when they do, I stammer, “Uh, hmmm, well…” because there are so many that I love and trying to think of just one puts me into momentary brain lock.

    But, I’d love to share favorite quotes on this blog, giving myself, and everyone who might wish to play along, ample time to consider the choices.

    This first one I have taped above my desk. “Each day, and the living of it, has to be a conscious creation in which discipline and order are relieved with some play and pure foolishness.” — May Sarton

    I like this quote because it reminds me that even though I might need to hunker down and make things happen on any given day, I must always remember to leave at least a little room for spontaneous play, a silly joke, a walk in the park, or a favorite treat and not take myself or my work too seriously. I don’t always adhere to the advice, but the quote helps to remind me to take breaks from the serious stuff each day to laugh and enjoy and to not put these simple pleasures off. With that, I think I’ll go take a moment to play!
