Work & Play

I was talking with a kindergarten teacher who corrected me when I talked about the children’s play.

It’s their work, she admonished.

I know that.

Then, as someone entering elderhood, I wondered:

If “play” is children’s “work”; and “work” is adults’ “work”, what is the “work” of retired people?

Should they be blessing or witnessing or extending the evolution of consciousness? Something like that, I think.
