December 4 – Wonder. How did you cultivate a sense of wonder in your life this year?
Chris says: He treats every situation as if he was walking in for the first time.
Me? This year, it was about applying a twist to each experience.
Game mechanics. And play.
Gaming is transformational. It makes you look at things differently.
The scavenger hunts that Chris and I took part of—from BANG to City Chase to the hunt within De Young…they made us look at places differently. The Journey to the End of the Night made us look at people differently.
During the latter part of the year, I became fascinated with zombies. And I thought about how I would survive. How others would survive. What life would be like. Could I endure with all the changes? It was play.
But it all came back to games. I have connected and disconnected with people over games, because they bring out a lot of the natural instincts in people.
As Plato once said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.”
