I remember working on a tile-and-grout trivet in Takodah's Hobby Nook as a camper when I was maybe 10 years old. I remember taking in sensory information—the chatter and crowded jostling of other campers, the heat of the building, the chirping of crickets outside the open windows, the smell of melted wax, the roughness of the woven chair seat against the backs of my thighs—and simultaneously being lost in my own small world of focus, arranging little ceramic tiles. I remember thinking about pattern and balance, discovering the appeal of asymmetry, experiencing the ping! of satisfaction when everything felt just right.
