Along the Way
Often it’s precisely the insignificant things that become essential to the
very magic of play. What superficially appears unsuitable as a plaything
like a dented old tin can, in the blink of an eye, become a ball, just for now.
The value lies in their flexibility, giving fantasy a free rein and creating
its own space. Through the magic of play they grow beyond themselves and
following the dreams and fantasies of the players, they metamorphose
again and again into new structures. They are bridges between days and dreams.
