the big build 2015

i pray that my girls will feel
their options are open
and will not confine their dreams
to a limited box defined by others
because they have been to the big build
and dabbled in the hands-on-stuff
that sparks joy in children
who become designers, builders, ironworkers, landscape architects, woodworkers, artisans, and plumbers
so that they can play+work+build with the tools they’ve wanted to use since childhood.
