I yearn to be serious again

A great presentation at TED by Paula Scher on the tensions between serious play and solemn work. It is the serious play that has the enthusiasm, the inventiveness, the innocence and the fearlessness that drives creativity and innovation. But serious play is always shadowed by solemn work, waiting to formalise it, document it, manage it, reuse it and bring it to its knees. That is why we have so few serious moments. Paula had 4 such moments that she talks about in her presentation. I've had less than that, but would love, love, to have more.
