Come Play with my Toy

I was reading somewhere that 99.9% of adults forget how to play just for the sake of playing. Running/walking becomes a grim business of time and distance checking, cell phone manipulations and exhaustion. PBs (personal bests) join career achievements. Races and competitions become de rigeur. All the absolute fun is removed leaving the same stress levels as are on the job. I've been there with tennis, running and bridge.
I've made the decision recently that if it's not fun I'm not going to do it.
With that in mind I added a new toy to my life, see above. Yeah, I bought this second hand for a couple of bucks.
I can't stop playing with it. The lighthouse flashes, the water pours down the mountain into the sea and the gulls call and cry to each other.
It's like I vacuumed my brain.
