Crayons and the World

All of my life I've been wondering about crayons. I know I've said that so many times before. When I was a child it was a somewhat literal thought. All of the colors are so unique and beautiful. Each color has a presence of its own.

But those wonderings were also imagination. I could change the color of the sky in my world. I could color the flowers red, orange, and yellow. I could make them all shades of magnificent blues.

All of our eyes see color in a slight different way. Science has shown that. And who knows whether my concept of red is the same or even near yours. Yet, we can all play with our crayons can draw a vision of wonder.

We can use crayons to change the world.

Hmmm. This will probably make you raise an eyebrow, but I think crayons have been using ME to change the world. They lay in wait for me in places where I don't expect to find them, and then,when I pick them up, they give me a message. Each color has its' own purpose don't-you-know.

I think crayons are out to change the world one human at a time. :)

Hi Dawn,
I think someone like who fidns crayons on the sidewalks of Chicago might just be a special one who is a change agent in her own right . . . coloring the world. :)

After all you ARE called Dawn aren't you now? :)

Crayons are currently my favourite media of choice! For the time being anyway. I love the fact that they allow you freedom in what you're drawing! It's a very positive thing to indulge the child inside!

Come and have a look at some of the pics I've done:
