My post is a simple one. I converted the race that made me look into gaming as a hobby. That fateful September day back in 1981 opened the door to a world of imagination and community that I have enjoyed ever since. Those two things have often fueled my joy of living and certainly impacted my decisions in life. While I cannot credit RPG's with the being to source or origin of my vocation, the world I came to know in gaming has certainly shaped my understanding of life and my appreciation of it.
Here are just a few of things I have learned from RPG's.
- Life really is a story, what story do I find myself to be in?
- It takes friends to fulfill the mission.
- The best laid plans can be hampered by bad luck.
- Half-assed plans can come together with a bit of daring and good fortune.
- There is a real communion that comes about by laughter, cooperation and shared enjoyment.
I am sure I could write more along those line, but my parishioners already know I am too wordy. No need to inflict such pains upon any of the readers here. Have a great Appreciation Day, may your adventures be meaningful and your friends plentiful!
