I have had an affinity for LEGO for as long as I can remember. I have distinct memories of being super excited to visit my cousins in Sarnia because they had tons of colourful bricks (they were a LEGO-loving family). My first LEGO set was a spaceship, model 1968. It’s the one toy that I still have to this day. Clearly my crush started with that spaceship…
and now, decades later, it continues as I keep seeing LEGO being used in creative, clever, and fun ways.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this short departure into a world of colourful bricks, nostalgia, and ingenious ideas.
I think I’m going to go play… err work.
