When I was a child, coloring was one of my favorite activities.
I remember sitting at a white kitchen table as gentle rays of light streamed through the windows. In front of me were some scrap paper, a box of pencil crayons, and an illustration.
I would pick up a coloring pencil, test it out on scrap paper, and away I went. The pencil touched the paper at a slight angle as I carefully shaded within the lines. I would periodically put down my pencil, assess my work, and then continue where I had left off. It was like breathing life into something that formerly seemed still and lackluster.
Drawing from scratch? Painting? Sure, I liked those as well. But there were some qualms that came along with those activities. Where was I supposed to begin? What if I messed up? My drawings never seemed perfect, no matter how often I used my eraser and tried again.
But coloring was different. A simple back-and-forth motion of the pencil yielded a vibrant hue on the page. Coloring wasn’t about right or wrong, it simply just was.
