Being Silly and Having Fun

I’ve discovered that being silly and playful is a very important part of life for me.  And yesterday I had an opportunity to exercise my silly muscle playing in Lake St. Claire with my young nieces.  It was a glorious warm, sunny day.  My brother, his wife and two young daughters ( 5 & 7) met us with their boat and anchored next to us.

We played for hours swimming, pouring cold water on each other, throwing a football, ejecting each other off the rafts, pretending to be sharks and enjoying lunch.  It was heaven and I’m sore today.  It’s a good kind of sore, one that reminds me of the importance of play and laughter.  (Of which I’m reminded every time I twist my torso or raise my arms above my head!!!)

Here’s something else I did recently that was silly.  I used  Yearbook Yourself to superimpose my face onto heads stylized from different fashion eras.  What a hoot.  Here are the results:
