"A single dream is more powerful than a thousand realities."
Hello and welcome to my MOCpage! My name is Blake Baer and I have been a member since 7/13/09.
I am a 17 year old kid from Pennsylvania, USA and it is the landscapes in my backyard that inspire many of my scenes portrayed in LEGO. Some of my interests are LEGO (duh), soccer, reading, music, medicine, outdoors, dogs, guns, and of course food. At this point in my life, I am really interested in medical school, but I am open to see how God leads me. I am home-schooled and I have been for most of my life. I am also a Christian and I pray that I would represent God well while on MOCpages. I hope this helps you know a little more about me.
I really enjoy building natural landscapes so I often build creations from Lord of the Rings, a fantastic book series by JRR Tolkien that has some incredible landscapes in it. However, I try to branch out into other genres every so often. One of the best things about LEGO in my opinion is that it is such an incredible medium to use your creativity and God-given talents to express your imagination in a material and understandable way.
One of my gifts to the community, has been to compile a huge LEGO glossary containing most of the well known terms and acronyms used by the LEGO community. I encourage you to go look through the glossary so you can impress your peers with your LEGO lingo!
"If the lid on the Pick-a-Brick cannister closes then there isn't enough bricks in it."
I can also be found on Brickshelf, flickr and you may also see me around sites such as Classic-Castle and other forums by the screen-name of Blego7 or Blego20 (LEGO.com handle).
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I can be emailed at blakesbaericks[at]gmail[dot]com.
