I brought it to college becuase it reminded me of her, but didn't color at all. I found it when I was unpacking, however, and something about the simple pictures waiting to be colored called to me.
So when I was "supposed" to be writing one afternoon, I turned on some music and got out the coloring book instead.
|There may be a reason why my eyes went straight to THIS picture when I was choosing one to color...|
Well, I ended up with glitter from the crayons all over me. No idea how that happened. I was wearing a strapless top, and it looked like I had taken a jar of glitter and sprinkled it all over my chest and shoulders. I must have been really into my coloring, I guess.
But also, there were plot revelations. HUGE plot revelations.
And that's when I realized just how rare it is for me to let my mind unwind like that. Sometimes life is so busy that it's not possible to set aside time like that, but I think I've been cutting myself short in terms of creativity...
What do you like to do to refresh your creative brain and let ideas come to the surface? Or are you like me, and don't do this enough?
