THE POWER OF PLAY

Eventually, most of us grow up, find our niche and settle in. Not a bad thing, but often, we also lose our ability to open up and have fun. This can also make us less effective on the job. Artistic types especially, need to keep our creative side flowing.  This is why you will find a lot of fun activities to join at the events.  So dive in and have some fun and get those creative juices flowing!
