Podcast Quotes: Joanne: "I hope that they always think that anything is possible, that they do use their imagination that they don't just stop playing just because we're adults."
Clara: "Using your imagination make life a lot more fun!"
Joanne and Clara: "Anything is possible, right Clara? "YEAH!" "That's the one thing that we talked about so much with kids especially." "They tend to believe that much more than adults do and they will try things that adults sometimes get fearful. It seems along the path of life those little kids grow up and become more fearful, more reticent to get out there and try new things or to imagine new things. We think having an imagination and doing things out of the ordinary is not practical and not behavior appropriate to an adult."
