For my project, i actually built a dream. My daughter Zoe was my inspiration. Before going to bed, i peek into my daughter's bedroom to see if she is sleeping. She looks so peaceful, her little body spread all over the place, like she's been busy in her dream, maybe flying into the sky through the clouds like a super hero trying to save a town from a huge mechanical dragon.

I was a child that always had a lot of imaginative dreams. I could remember my dreams so vividly. I still dream a lot, but I always wish my dreams would be as fantastical as they were when I was a kid. I find that kid's dreams are simple, but magical.
