When we were kids we took what was given to us and made what we needed. The world was at our fingertips and anything was possible. How did we lose that? How did we get to the point where the world was against us? The world is our playground. Everything you see is actually something else in disguise.
I was lying on the ground at a park where some kids were playing on the merry-go-round, but to them it wasn't a merry-go-round, it was a train. Kids can create their own reality. Why are we making them grow up so fast? In a child's world anything is possible. Now we're told to follow the rules, follow the pattern. Creativity is punished for being different when it should be praised for the very same reason. Just because it's been done before and works doesn't necessarily make it the best reason.
