I’m grateful for Gary Gygax.
For creating a system of collaborative story-telling.
A vehicle for journeying in your imagination.
A world for creating worlds.
A spelunking kit for exploring the depths of your own character.
A game, for trying on different masks and seeing how they make you feel.
A test, for your courage, greed, cleverness, and kindness.
A garden, for growing camaraderie.
A love note, for inviting you to fall in love with what is Best to you.
I could say more. But if I have any spare time today, I’d rather spend it crafting a better world. First in my imagination. Because everything starts there, doesn’t it?
