Playfulness, curiosity, Einstein, Freeman Dyson, and you

Garry Shirts is a friend, game genius, and fellow recipient of the Iffil Raynolds award. But that's beside this particular point, which is about a quote Garry sent me, from this article in which philosopher Avishai Margalit says about Freeman Dyson: "... To me he is a towering figure although he is tiny - almost a saintly model of how to get old. The main thing he retains is playfulness. Einstein had it. Playfulness and curiosity."

I raise my conceptual glass to you, dear reader, in virtual toast: may you grow evermore playful, may you become curiouser and curiouser!

from Bernie DeKoven, funsmith
