A young couple playing badminton in the streets. It's a sunny late afternoon, they are both focused and seem to find much joy in it.

嬉 (Play)

Play is the last source of joy for this week. There can be an innocence in it that is hard to find elsewhere – not because hiking, cycling, music, etc. are not also innocent, but because real play allows us to forget time and any greater goal that lies beyond the moment.

Competition takes part of this away, at least for me – but maybe this is different for different people. Did you find time to play this weekend?
