“The pursuit of truth and beauty is a   sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.”   Albert Einstein  So why is it that as we “mature” we tend to lose the childlike wonder and our gathering places become so functional and bereft of creativity? Should children’s areas be the only places where creativity and common areas coexist?  When we enter our companies, restaurants and churches many of us are seeking to be in stimulating environments.  Shouldn’t our experience be one of wonderment rather than that of a corporate seminar? Let’s dream together!
