Word for the week – Play

“Play is the highest form of research.” ~ Albert Einstein

Wikipedia says:


play is a range of voluntary, intrinsically motivated activities normally associated with recreational pleasure and enjoyment.[1] Play is most commonly associated with children and their juvenile-level activities, but play can also be a useful adult activity, and occurs among other higher-functioning (non-human) animals as well.”

Defintions of love

Valentines day make me think of love and what it actually is. The webster dictionary defines love as:

love  (lŭv)


1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.


a. Sexual passion.
b. Sexual intercourse.
c. A love affair.
4. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
5. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
6. An expression of one’s affection: Send him my love.


a. A strong predilection or enthusiasm: a love of language.
b. The object of such an enthusiasm: The outdoors is her greatest love.
8. Love Mythology Eros or Cupid.
9. often Love Christianity Charity.
10. Sports A zero score in tennis.
For me the definition is best summed up by my parents.
63 years ago on Feb 14 my Mum and Dad married. From that came 6 children, many grandchildren (sorry too many to count) and 4 and half great-grandchildren. WOW! Amazing legacy. Congratulations Mum and Dad – we all love you and thank you for every minute of our lives.
