The Importance of Play in Life

Ben Michaels, Ph. D. wrote this in his column on Huffington Post entitled, “The Four-Letter Word That Will Change Your Life”: “I’ve met people who wouldn’t send their children to a school that lacked an arts program, yet they never even consider that they themselves should be spending time playing and imagining.
