Total Wind Playground Wanderlust

Comment

Yesterday I spend all day playing with kids inside and out Wind Playground. I had such fun . I could their big eye light up with dreams seeking imaginary adventures inside and outside the sculpture. I was honored by it and inspired by their excitement and thoughtful questions .

Thank you to all the little monkeys
You made my day

BIG THANKS to all the supporter . I know not all when as planed . Between equipment malfunction, limited resources, high hopes some time smashed by false promises the production of Wind Playground was delayer of a year and I'm terribly sorry about that.
