The doctors say dad's a big puzzle, but they are amazed at how well he looks and acts, considering the read-outs from all his machines, which are pretty bad.
So, we keep on waiting.
Today I wish you all more play-time, more imagination and lots more...According to Heraclitus, creative mastery comes from having an attitude similar to a child playing a game. If you can playfully “push and move” the various pieces of your problem — to see what works and what doesn’t — then you possess the power to create something new.
An important by-product of play is fun, and it is a very powerful motivator.
For example, Rosalind Franklin, the scientist whose crystallography research was instrumental in the discovery of the structure of DNA, was asked what motivated her. She replied, “Because our work is so much fun!”
Similarly, Murray Gell-Mann, the physicist who coined the term quark after a line in James Joyce’s Finnegan’s Wake, was asked to comment on the names of the various types of quarks — flavor, color, charm, strange, etc. He said:
“The terms are just for fun. There’s no particular reason to use pompous names. One might as well be playful.”
Finally, the renowned chair designer Bill Stumpf was once asked what criteria he used to select new projects. He responded:
“There are three things I look for in my work: I hope to learn something, I want to make some money, and I’d like to have some fun.
If the project doesn’t have the promise of satisfying at least two of these, then I don’t sign on.”
