To be playful is not to be trivial or frivolous, or to act as if nothing of consequence will happen. On the contrary, when we are playful... everything that happens is of consequence, for seriousness is a dread of the unpredictable outcome of open possibility. To be serious is to press for a specified conclusion. To be playful is to allow for unlimited possibility.
