PLAY: what are you going to do today for the fun of it? Just for the hell of it? Where’s the #joy in only doing the things you have to do, instead of also doing the things you want to do? In 2010 I took a road trip with a children’s home in #Thailand up to Phrao. Halfway there we pulled over just so they could run around and let off steam. It’s by exploring and playing that we generate new ideas, problem solve laterally, and find fulfilment and meaning in the activities we’re engaged in. What will you do today?

In 2010 I set off on a solo motorbike trip around #Bali. No places to stay, map or sense of direction…just West. Not that you could get lost for long on an island that size. When it grew dark I’d find a hotel, and in the morning get back on the bike. Mentally it was liberating not to know how my day would unfold and that I could follow any interesting-looking road on a whim. This photo was taken on my first day along the south-west coast, at a point where the highway is below the #ricefields. I could stand upright and take this cross-section angle…as though dissecting the field.  (at DavidJoshuaFord.com)
