Free Play

Spent a while doodling on Context Free though my creations were hardly worthy of the gallery.Playing without knowing the rules was fun because the outcome was unexpected and surprising.

A while ago a mother I met sometimes at J's daycare was complaining that the caregivers just let the kids play supervising only to the extent that no one gets hurt. She expects more structure and organization. At four she wants her child to learn as she plays. She has since found a place that meets her needs better.

I was like J today, playing free and unstructured and enjoying it. I hope she cherishes the memories of the few "lawless" and "freeform" years of her life.
