Many of you may be too young to remember... but there was once a time when playtime was simple and magical. With only our imaginations, we could be anything! Go anywhere! Create any adventure that would soar us beyond ourselves and our surroundings!

No high technology required... just me and/or playmates …and the freedom to imagine!

I remember times alone (or with friends) in my bedroom with only my dolls, toys or a book, we would go on magical adventures to places far, far away or create exciting productions or dream and speculate on grand future accomplishments... or just whatever our imaginations dictated!

Now don't get me wrong technology is great and it is helping to make our kids academic wiz kids!

However, it is often just a linear exchange ...requiring very little imaginative energy.

Imagination is created from an internal wellspring that reaps personal benefits and contributions to world that are immeasurable! Imagination is a blessing from the spirit that feeds the soul. Imagination is a necessity of life. It is important not let our children's imaginations starve.

One of the goals of Brown Shugah Junction it to provide children with opportunities to simply dream and fed their imaginations!!!
