Creative work is serious play.
An aphorism from Fripp’s Diary. I can’t tell where one ends and the other begins. Good work takes on the appearance of play. Bad play feels like work. Sometimes the work is to remain playful. My work is to play. My playing is work. I don’t think this experience is confined to the Arts.
I’ve done very little work in my lifetime. I usually have so much fun doing it…no matter what. I feel sorry for those who live only for Fridays and retirement. I doubt they have much fun even then.
