Today was good. Today was fun. Tomorrow is another one.~Dr. Seuss
This was a tough week to create a post about fun. (See below.) But in a flash, I remembered the kids of summer, who really know how to have fun. So, that’s why they totally own this week’s photo challenge. My collection was shot over several years in 4 cities in the United States.
You can be childlike without being childish. A child always wants to have fun. Ask yourself, ‘Am I having fun?’ ~Christopher Meloni
Summer means happy times and good sunshine. It means going to the beach, going to Disneyland, having fun.~Brian Wilson
Having fun was the last thing on my mind this week. We were getting on a plane to spend the weekend with a seriously ill friend, who is facing a number of grave health challenges. He was gaunt and thin and very weak, but he flashed a big smile when he first saw us and laughed as we shared memories of our time together over the past few decades. This loving and good man reminds us of the power and necessity of enjoying life and having fun–even as we approach the end of our time here on earth. This quote by Randy Pausch is especially apt:
Never, ever underestimate the importance of having fun.~Randy Pausch
So, what are you waiting for, all you kids–young and old and in-between? Have some fun this week!
