Caldur's name means "rough water". And that's exactly where he likes to play. He seeks out white water rapids and swims through the rough water avoiding rocks and other debris as he goes. All that work makes him particularly quick and agile while swimming in calmer waters. The other Plesiosaur 's warn him that some day he's going to bash his head on a rock, but that doesn't stop him.
This is a very old picture of my mom, my little sister and myself. When I was 5 years old, my parents took us to a river area where dinosaur foot prints were fossilized in the stone of the river bank. I remember being told what I was looking at, but my 5 year old self equated foot prints to something alive. I kept scanning the bushes and trees along the bank of the river, looking for the dinosaur that had made those prints. I am told that I came to the conclusion that something that big was hiding and was too scary to face. I retreated to the car, refusing to come out again. :)
Looking at the picture, I am reminded how much imagination is part of a child's world. And, how very real it all feels to a child. Did you have fun with your imagination as a child? Do you still have fun wondering, "what if..."? Making toys that fire up the imagination and get those creative juices flowing is fun for me. I sincerely hope it is fun for you as well.
