The taller these two towers grew the more Rowan's excitement grew. I think he must have applauded his construction at least three times during the course of building. At the end all he could say was "It's high high! It's high!" with a great big grin lighting up his face and his arms reaching for the sky.

Somehow I don't think we ever grow tired of building things higher and higher. We are always curious of exactly what would happen if we added just one more brick and then if the tower is still standing maybe just one more. We build and build until finally there is a collapse. And then we say: "Oh no! What happened?" as if we didn't see it coming. Well, that's human nature for you I guess.

Just look at that face.
