There is but one infinite game
The book Finite and Infinite Games is quite an interesting read.
Perhaps perfect for Summertime when there are less normal everyday worries.
There are at least two kinds of games. One could be called finite, the other infinite. A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play.
A lot of parts are clearly golden. In aggregate the entire book is.
No one can play a game alone. One cannot be human by oneself. There is no selfhood where there is no community. We do not relate to others as the persons we are; we are who we are in relating to others.
Explanations establish islands, even continents, of order and predictability. But these regions were first charted by adventurers whose lives are narratives of exploration and risk. They found them only by mythic journeys into the wayless open.
Do you like reading? When was the last time you have read a book? Don't be like Sam :)

Play the Longer Game, Run a Marathon. Read books again. You have time.
It's a test of ultimate will
The heartbreak climb uphill
Got to pick up the pace
