    Regarding play...it starts out innocent enough (fun and games as they say) — infants with a rattler, toddlers with blocks, and things progress from there — tag-you’re-it as children, strumming the guitar as kids, competing in sports as teens, performing in a theatrical play in high school— then on to playing quarters, getting played, being a player, and finally — getting played out.
