Sand Castles 1

As adults we often forget that "play" can be deeply serious and satisfying. It's not only running and jumping and giggling, important though those are. Play may involve deep concentration that is a kind of practice for the most important work we will do later in our lives. One of the most fascinating aspects of beach-watching is to see how often this environment induces this profound level of contemplation and purposeful activity in children.

Hopefully - often enough! As you said, playing around isn't only about games and fun. Or, more like, fun does not necessarily mean playing around. Thanks for the amazing pictures!

Very cool picture. I would love to see the finished product! He's got a lot of sand to work with.
