A Life Worth Living

“It is the useless things that make life worth living and that make life dangerous too: wine, love, art, beauty. Without them life is safe but not worth bothering with.”

– Stephen Fry

This is the quote I am pondering this week. I think it is healthy to remember that pursuits that seem frivolous can be anything but. Often it is these frivolities that provide joy and a life worth living.

I only have to look at my toddler nephew whose reply to, “what did you do at school (read: day care) today?” is “play!” We all need play and the joy that comes with it in our lives.

The frivolities I have pursued / am pursuing this week: skiing, finishing a fiction book, brewing a stout for St. Patrick’s Day, and playing a “nerdy” RPG board game with my brother-in-law.
