"I think it comes down to our audience. Children are magical. They have a sense of discovery, a magical sense of curiosity, a sense of joy of being alive in the world. As adults we are often spoilers if we think wee are showing the magical world to them without receiving it from them first, the magic turns to dust. The children are the inspiration for the magic. That's why I work and choose to work for them."
