It is amazing to see how a bucket that was originally designed to carry water is so often used to create sand castles and in this case create a city of castles.
Someone, somewhere, some time, took a bucket which up till then had only be used for carrying water or other practical purposes, filled it with sand, tipped it upside down and created the first sand castle.
Now all over the world children get their little buckets and make sandcastles, delighting themselves and others.
This is how creativity works sometimes, through play, not through striving.
