Can you build an escape plan out of LEGO bricks?

Today marks the first day that I found myself getting annoyed that I had to write instead of build with LEGO.

It was only a minor moment, a small sense of irritation that I found myself in front of the computer, instead of rearranging bricks around my kitchen table. But it caught my attention because I writing has always been the thing that lets me get away from feeling annoyed or upset. It's typically been my escape.

I'm starting to wonder if there is a subtle shift occurring where building with LEGO is becoming the activity that I turn to for comfort.
