RevGals Friday Five: Play-ful!

Calf Creek Canyon, near Escalante in Southern Utah

1. Tell about your favorite outdoor play. My primary forms of outdoor “play” include walking, biking, and gardening….all of which really are playful for me because they bring me great delight.

2. Tell about your favorite indoor play. Yoga is probably my favorite form of indoor play, or some other exercise I find on YouTube. But I also like to play solitare, scrabble, and angry birds on my iPad….

3. Tell about a game you (or your friends) created
. When I was a little girl we lived in a neighborhood with a patch of woods. I love to pretend that I was Sacajawea and walk the woods as silently as I could, attempting to not even bend a blade of grass.

4. Tell about a game that is new to you. Mexican Train played with dominoes…I didn’t actually play it, but I was present when a group of people did – looked like a lot of fun.

5. Tell how you would like to incorporate play into your workday.
As a parish priest I often find that anytime I with the children of the parish my playful nature gets engaged. I love to be with kids! Also, many of the adults in my current parish are great story tellers, and that is a playful way to have a “meeting.”

About Terri C Pilarski

I am an Episcopal priest serving a delightfully progressive, interesting, creative congregation. I have been married more than half my life to the same man. We have two grown children, plus two dogs and two cats, although the number of four legged household members changes from time to time. I love to garden, knit, read, and play on Facebook or with my blog. I have been a practitioner of daily meditation since I was nineteen. I practice yoga five days a week and walk every where I am able too.

    I can get sucked into solitare etc on my iPad as well.

  3. I loved the woods, too, when I was a girl. Different activities though.

  4. sometimes we all need the solitude of a patch of woods… hope you can find that now!
