I remember ‘pretend’ play as a child. Sometimes alone, murmuring quietly to myself in a story, slipping through characters and time, being whoever I wanted to be and making things happen in ways that were larger and brighter than life. Or with my sister, moving in an enchanted space where I would be the princess and she, being the youngest, would have to jump at my every request. Like all children, we would spend hours weaving the raw material of our experiences into compelling play, where at once we would make sense of and escape from our real world.
