Coloring…not just for kids anymore…

Happily surprised to see the variety and number of coloring books that are so popular today, many of which are sub-titled..”for grown ups”. If it’s been awhile since you have picked up a crayon and colored, whether an original creation or in a coloring book like these, you should do so. You may experience a slow, almost palpable unraveling of your tightly-wound stresses and worries and your “To Do” list may evaporate for the moment. What those of us who dabble in paints and crayons have always known is the promise of that escape hatch, a time to let your mind go where it will. I’m thinking that some coloring books and crayons in classrooms might be a good thing, as well.
