Follow Up On Crayons

Hello All,
I just had to add a bit about the crayons.

I am a co-founder of the Writers Inspiration Group which meets every Tuesday. We take turns providing writing prompts to the group. After the prompt is given we write for about 10 minutes. Then we go around and read, or pass. We don't critique; we just share. We are almost to our Fourth Anniversary.

Today I took in my pile of back-to-school supplies including 6 boxes of crayons. I also had some coloring pages I had printed off the Internet. I told the group about sniffing crayons and then let them color for awhile. Then we wrote about our back-to-school memories.

Picture 15 adults in a corner of the bookstore sniffing crayons and then quietly coloring. One of the men asked me what to do with it when we finish and I told him to take it home and put it on his fridge.

Here's my Mrs. Duck.
She came from Free Coloring Pages. (Thank you.)

Many in the group commented on how relaxing it was to color. They're right. Coloring is great for stress and will all the back-to-school sales so cheap. So get to coloring.

Now excuse me, I have to go put my picture on the fridge.
