This piece is about that time in your childhood when imagination was king, play was what you did for an occupation, and you could fly. It’s about that sticky-sweet time when you could find a piece of plastic that looked a little like something and immerse yourself in a fantasy world for hours at a time. It’s not an homage to great toys, nor the activity of play. It’s a tribute to the time before it ever occurred to you to “grow up,” to the innocence of the kids we were, the kids we grew up
with, and the kids we are now.
