Guest post by J. M. Hawkins

Dear Soul,

What are you going to teach me today?

Dear Life,

I don’t teach. I play. Now if you want to play, that’s OK. Play to learn, learn to play.

Are you ready to enter the school of play? Well, you do have a healthy I.Q. But the school of play is about your L.Q., your Life Quotient—so let’s start with an L.Q. test.

I see that you have a brain to think with. And eyes to see with. Ah, and a heart to feel with. But bottom line, are you any fun to be with?

Join the school of play—bring a playful spirit to your day—and your L.Q. will start to rise. Plus, the people around you will be glad you did!

Today, I’ll dare to play—to be in high spirits. If storm clouds gather, I’ll cut through them like lightning!
