One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Playtime

Adult responsibilities are tiny, instantly forgettable burdens - yes, one needs appropriate shelter, food, and transportation, but acquiring these takes nearly no effort and thus claims of overburden are absurd or reveal a broken constitution.

Much more important is sustaining childish wonder and an eternal spark: curiosity to see how things work and find out for yourself what no one can tell you, to see the world from close and afar, to find suitable playmates, to periodically discard boundaries, assumptions, habits, routines, and previous structures to clear a cluttered virtual landscape, to obey inspiration wherever it leads you, to write a love letter or appreciative note, always keeping in mind the blessing of knowing special people, to trust yourself entirely even as you venture into unfamiliar worlds, to aspire towards ever greater meaning, purpose, and truth, to have wonderment at the strangeness of things and their unusual beauty, considering and then attempting alternatives while at the same time accepting what stands for now in its glorious banality, to accept no easy or fraudulent answers, to speak truths among friends without self-censorship, to slay saints while laughing at vaunted ghouls and phantoms, to transform into judge and jury of oneself and to become more militaristically strategic from that assessment, to easily dismiss fools, the confused, the dogmatic, the idly wandering, and the malicious instead of concerning oneself with them and their maladies, and most of all having eyes that still flash with interest and a perpetually fresh spirit that never sinks too low or grows dull.
