Like many introverts, I take life pretty seriously. What I do must be purposeful, practical, productive.
Or so my inner critic likes to remind me.
It’s only now that I’m “of a certain age” I realize life’s way too short not to play. So in recent years I’ve joined Toastmasters, taken up swing dancing, learned to yodel, tried my hand at improv comedy, beefed up my blues guitar chops, and in general decided it’s OK to enjoy making a fool of myself.
Talk about purposeless play! You have to watch the video (the larger image, please) of the winner Alex Koll (stage name: Awesome Shred Begley, Jr.) explaining and demonstrating his extraordinary talents at Air Guitar.
Now this guy puts his heart and soul, body and hair into PLAY!
