Yesterday we went to the National Building Museum, and there happened to be a lot of blocks out for families with small children. Since we are architects and shameless, we decided to join in.
We all kept discussing how soothing it was to play with blocks. Then we all talked about how soothing it was to knock it all down. I am always wishing that I could find more time for "productive creativity" - stuff like crafting, watercolors, and design competitions. I'm starting to think that I should focus less on having something to show for my work and more on blocks.
