If you haven't discovered that Isette Façìon's research on The World's Oldest Microblogging Platform sounds as suspicious as her name, you should check it out. Meanwhile, I'm dipping into The Power of Fun by Catherine Price, where she makes the case for engaging in an extra-special version of fun she calls True Fun and notes its "magical confluence of playfulness, connection, and flow" can lead us to be "more productive and joyful and less resentful and stressed." Wow, "True Fun" sounds just like "creativity"!

Q: When did you first discover your talent for cartooning and painting?
A: wanted to be important and popular and be liked, so I tried to be clever and funny and get others to laugh. I signed up for a cartooning class and arrived a bit late to notice that lots of adults were leaving the building. Was it cancelled? I head inside, and open the door, to see that it's filled with kids! I felt so strange at first, but then realized, hey, I'm with my correct age group!
