As adults we praise the imagination that children have in playing and creating as if we no longer have it. Just an hour at High Tea proves we have not lost that imagination. We simply haven’t been given the space, encouragement or freedom to exercise it. That space, that encouragement and that freedom are exactly what James and Jamesy give us. The immense pleasure we feel comes from realizing that a power we thought was lost has only been dormant. James and Jamesy’s High Tea awakens us.
