Somehow we stumbled upon the very thing that woke his heart and mind. What a stumble.
From Thomas the Train to Bakugans, books to movies, and then we found it. It has been around forever, or so it seems. It was around when I was a child. How we never found it before is a mystery, but once it was discovered, everything else faded into the background like some beautiful bokeh in a favorite photograph. Not unlike Cortez who ordered his ships burned in 1519 before leading his men to battle against the Aztecs in orders to take away their ability to retreat.
It was Legos. It was Legos all the time. Legos that would teach him to play alone, to focus deeply and for longer periods of time than ever before. It was Legos that would transform the way he saw the world. Every movie, book, computer game, building, road trip, would be fodder for the creations he would make.
That’s just the way it happened and the story still goes on. Where will it end? Only time will tell.
The short film was created by my talented husband one afternoon when the two boys were playing. I’m blessed with such creativity in my abundant family.
Just for fun, see a sneak peek of an entire city created in one day all by the hands of a six-year-old Lego master with an eye for detail and design.
