Are there cosmic truths? Harry thinks there are and he's discovered one which will make life easier, simpler and more fulfilling. He wants to share this epiphany with those he loves but not only do they not want to share in his enlightenment, they feel threatened by what he has to tell them.Much is at stake – careers, lifestyles, power – if Harry pursues his truth.

 

For Deidre, his wife - all her life she has worked to overcome the stigma of being the daughter of the neighbourhood drunk. She has struggled for social status, “respectability” and to have “nice things”. Now she has attained it and more is within her grasp. She can’t allow Harry to jeopardize it.

 

For Philip, his partner - his aggressive manner, lack of sophistication, short stature, balding pate, pudgy midriff and loud ties have made him a subject of derision among his colleagues, but landing this multi-million dollar client will change all that. Soon Harry’s condescension and the humiliation of his marriage will be overshadowed by the respect and power corporate success will bring. The “truth” is he only needs Harry to keep it together until the deal closes. After that, he can goddam well wander off into the wilderness if that’s what he wants.

 

For Joan, Phil's wife - the bitterness of her affair with Harry twenty years ago in college has shaped and defined her life, But not Harry’s. No, he just up and left her in search for “the truth” and she had to survive as best she could on her own. Now he’s about to do it again – turn her world upside down with the same selfish, irresponsible behavior. Maybe she can’t stop this middle-age flight of fancy but she isn’t going to let him influence her teenage daughter with all his nonsense about “following your heart”.

 

For Alexus, Joan’s daughter - her parent’s marriage is empty of love but filled with material possessions. How could “Uncle Harry’s” truth make anything worse? Her mom’s pushing her to go to college but that’s just more “preparing for life”. Uncle Harry’s truth sounds far more appealing. Better to fill your life with experiences than just more “stuff”.

 

"A quick and good read, and a play five actors can produce...One can read Harry's Truth as it were a short story."

"New money, fashionable clothes, a lot of work for Harry and Philip, the two business partners who started off selling doves to Chinese restaurants and slowly made it big. Now they're past forty and Harry has had enough. Enough, that's the keyword here: He wants to downsize the firm and his expenses because he knows that more money can't make him happier anymore. "...the interactions between the five of them let us have a glance at everybody's past. A lot gets revealed in every scene. I like the detailed stage instructions and the symbolism in the last scene. One can read Harry's Truth as it were a short story. I'd really like to see this play on stage someday..."

FIVE STARS, C. Widmann, Goodreads review

Why Outdoor Activities are Essential for Your Kid's Growth?

Toddlers, in their early years, grow rapidly. Their body and mind develop at a faster rate. In this era of technology, life has somewhat become difficult. You barely manage to take kids to playgrounds and parks. This results in kids getting glued to their tabs and mobiles; they rarely go out.

 

The importance of outdoor games and physical exercise can’t be neglected. They are as important as studies, especially for the Early Years age of children. But finding spare time to take kids out can be a bit cumbersome. This problem has an effective solution. Did you know that a small play area can now be installed in your backyard or lawn?

Benefits of Mini-Playgrounds

Safe and sound: The safety of children always worries the parents. A toddler can’t be sent outside to play all alone. Someone needs to be present there to keep an eye on them. However, if you have installed a mini-playground in your house, the child can happily enjoy the game time. You can watch your kid from the inside, and thus, the safety issue is solved.

 

Physical Growth: As mentioned earlier, the development of a child is significant during the early years. You need to be quite considerate about their physical activities during this period. Getting a min playground installed for them is not a bad idea. It can offer them various options to indulge in. The outdoor activities help in muscle build-up and immunity boost-up.

 

Bone development also attains a pace through physical activities. This means stronger bones and better heart functioning. The weight of your child also stays in a desirable proportion. The chances of them being under or overweight reduce significantly.

 

Better Brain Development: Playgrounds not only inculcate physical development in children but also enhances their brain growth. Brain cells increase when kids indulge in outdoor games. The blood-flow accelerates, and this has various other benefits as well.

 

Teamwork: With a playground installed in the backyard, your child can now have friends over. They can play in collective groups for efficient learning. This helps them in learning to work in teams, and they understand the importance of teamwork.

 

Personality Development: Having a playground will also help children develop their personalities. Social skills are learned through social interactions. But when a child spends the entire day in the house and experiences no social contact, this becomes a daunting task. Outdoor activities offer kids a chance to socialise.

 

Customisable: The playgrounds you install at home or even in schools can be customised according to the age group and area available. You can select the activities and swings to be installed. From play areas to swings and see-saws, you can find a wide variety in these playgrounds. The options are many; you need to figure out your requirements.

 

Reasonable Price: An ordinary playground can cost you a fortune. But these mini play areas come at affordable prices. This is why schools with limited budgets and spaces are also investing in them. You can again go to indoor playgrounds, which are quite similar to the mini play areas.

 

The physical growth of your child is necessary for a healthy life. Children at an early age develop in different ways, and the involvement of physical activities provides a healthy lifestyle. If you also find yourself anxious about sending your kid outside to play, mini play years make a perfect solution.
