Remember when we were younger, playing in a sandbox? We weren’t concerned with whether or not our castles were perfect; we learned what worked and what didn’t by experimentation. How much water? How much sand? How tall can we build before it collapses? Yet somehow that sense of play and creativity fades over time as we age.
And it’s disappearing at an earlier age than ever before.
