By guest author Shelley Berc. “We are all born creative, curious, and hungry to explore the world around and within us.
“For a child, creativity is expressed in play and play is the way he learns. Life is just one big erector set that is to be snapped together and pulled apart in a thousand different ways.
“But this flexibility often fades with the passage of time. We put away our toys and acquire jobs, kids, and mortgages.
“We become ‘specialists’ and keeping up with our specialty is supposed to take up all our spare time. But our eyes still seek out beauty and our hands itch to make something wonderful out of the wonders we see.”
