The quote: “Play - creativity - is fundamentally important for adults to continue to develop a sense of renewed and expanded self and a relationship with the world around them.”
is me adapting what Anita Grant had said, namely:
Anita Grant, the chair of Play England, said: “Play outdoors is fundamentally important for children to develop a sense of self and a relationship with the world around them. Adults’ protective instincts are not helpful when they restrict and control exploration, creativity, and a child’s natural instinct to engage with their environment freely.”
So really that would be “quote Mike Holdstock inspired by Anita Grant” or maybe there is another word for that in English which I cant remember. Not parody but something along those lines.
“Play - creativity - is fundamentally …for adults…” also is inspired by Jeanette Vos thought/slogan “if they’re not laughing they’re not learning”.
Thanks for all these wonderful exchanges Mike Holdstock.
