Star Glitter

Pretty packaging;
abandoning what’s inside,
kids know how to play

  1. I love that kids are often like this– goes to show that expensive toys aren’t as fun as having good friends and some imagination (and a box, of course!) Thanks for the read

  2. really like how the first two lines seem intricately connected, yet the final line, while I definitely see a connection, yet it offers to me more of a reflection, a commentary on the differences between ages, and how we lose something of that childhood vision as we grow older, and in ways more superficial and cynical, less believing, less imaginative. Strong piece Steve. Perfect for the theme tonight. Thanks

  3. oh that made me smile…isn’t it wonderful how kids can just play with everything…abandoning the “real” toys..i love this…cheers to them for not losing their fantasy
