Is play a form of self expression? A time when you let rather than try.
Could our play preferences be thought of as our preferred routes of self expression, me through singing and movement, her through stories; him through making things?
Does play allow a broader range of behavioural possibilities through which you can express yourself?
I feel a need for spaces where I can move, sound and speak in unconventional, free, expressive, true and unpredictable ways, free from judgement.
Where are those spaces?
In Berkeley I found myself crying and dancing secretly in a big disabled toilet in the cinema, secretly on the dark quiet backroads on my bike, a secret bicycle dance dressed with my tears
I had no home.
