I don't remember playing with blocks as a child but I enjoyed playing with my kids' blocks and Lincoln Logs. I have a trunk filled with blocks in my workshop (and keep buying more); I still play. This scene reminds me of my blocks of all colors, sizes, and shapes.
I've been away from blogging for a while--it was a hot month, a beloved aunt passed away, and I have a few paintings hanging in a group exhibit at MacCallum More Museum and Gardens in Chase City VA. I have kept up with reading your blogs; I'll now get back to leaving my comments.
