In last night's "Lizard 101" class, we talked about Play.
Silly play, play that is not productive, play for the joy of it, playing because we feel safe enough to be playing.
What happens at this Norwegian cross walk is such a great illustration. Strangers invite strangers to play. Thus delighting other strangers. Whom in turn may are very likely to want to play some more.
Lightening up the world's mood, at very little cost, and with no expectation other than doing just that.
I think it's brilliant (and why it would be illegal baffles my mind - although I don't really want to give it much energy.)
(and big thanks to my friend Marcia for introducing me to this bit of joy)

"I think I love you. You bring good things into my life, or remind me of things I love and know, but have let go of."
"Thank you for your gentle words that are packed full of wisdom. I have been struggling with the concept of what words can do to another person when they are negative words. This podcast is the flip side of our word power, and shows how delightfully powerful kind words can be. Loving words are so delicious leaving my mouths, and are just as delicious entering our ears. Our hearts are touched in both situations. It's a great circle of life. Thank you."

"Essentially pure love.
I enjoy how Laura is kind to herself and to us other humans who dance in and out of each other's lives. The first episode is so relatable and an enjoyable invitation to reflect and feel just a little more present and open. I am really looking forward to each episode!"
"Don't miss an episode!
You can count on Laura for warmth, humor, charm, and a lift to your day and your heart. She inspires me to be braver than I am, and to love the world out loud. She's a gem, and a generous one at that!"
