Art is often said to be the most enduring proof of our uniqueness as humans. None of Earth’s other creatures have the ability to conjure such majestic triumphs as the Taj Mahal, the Sistine Chapel or a Beethoven symphony. That’s because creating art requires the ability to envision a reality more promising than the one you’re in. While many of us might not be blessed with a composer’s ear, a painter’s eye or an inventor’s mind, each of us is born with our own unique aesthetic. That aesthetic can help shape the essence of who we are.

Say the word “childhood” and visions of another world come rushing to the surface: Peter Pan’s Neverland, Alice’s Wonderland, and the bounty of Narnia.  What we most often associate with childhood are long afternoons when little was expected of us and when we were most permitted—even expected—to play.
