    Got this link today on another list, and thought it to be very interesting. Another excuse to keep quilting!

    ‘Doing something that engages you and that you enjoy is key. As adults, we don’t often do enough that includes fun and play.

    I definitely agree with this quote. I like keeping silly things like crayons & coloring books/pages at work for when the stress gets to be a bit high.

    side question: what is "train-spotting"? Is that like watching airplanes landing?
