***Play Is Essential Series: Play & Creativity***
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
All human creativity and development emerge from the interactions among playing, making, and knowing. This is the fundamental principle behind my book in progress “Shaping Lives, Transforming Communities: Creative Expression in the Dance of Life” and its related resource guides. Today’s post from the Medium offers reflections and insight into this important truth.

The Creative Apothecary Believes in the Essential Power of Play!
PLAY is one of the four-letter essentials in my foundation philosophy of how all of us develop and learn to live in this world. The three together are PLAY, MAKE, KNOW. It is through our exploration of these activities and the interactions among them that we shape our lives and our worlds.
Unfortunately, play has been debased and ignored in our present education systems. This is a key reason for the failures of education not just in the United States but in other nations as well. This new book by Perry Else is an important contribution to our rethinking of PLAY in the lives of children.
READ AND READ AGAIN…SHARE WITH OTHERS, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN EDUCATION.

Whenever I get discouraged about the development of creative approaches to life and living in our world, something comes along to lift my spirits. In August that something is inevitably Burning Man. In the Nevada desert each year, creative people come together to produce the week-long Burning Man Festival.
HuffPost gives us a preview of some of the wonders this year’s festival offers.
Look at these images and tell me you don’t want to head for the Nevada desert this month!
