When was the last time you colored?

Crayons (217k image)

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air – explode softly – and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth – boxes of Crayolas. And we wouldn’t go cheap, either – not little boxes of eight. Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in. With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with their imagination.

    I think the last time I colored was with Delaney when she came down for Matty’s confirmation. I still have her picture that she drew of her and I framed in my office and the fish hanging on the fridge. I need some pictures from the bibblet and kam to add to the collection!

    Delaney has issues with crayons, she seems to always break them. The intensity!
