What Color is Joy?

Opening a brand new box of crayons ranks right up there on my joy scale. As a kid, I might not have been ready for school to†begin in August, but I was always ready for the fresh start and unlimited possibilities contained in the rainbow of perfect points in my new box of crayons each year.

My daughter starts her junior year of high school tomorrow. My son leaves for his sophomore year of college the day after that. Maybe they donít need Crayolas anymore, but I do.

I have a new box of 24 sitting on my desk right now. More than the basic eight, but not so many as to be overwhelmed with the choices. Blue green, apricot, cerulean, carnation pink, yellow-green, green-yellow. Now all I need is a coloring book.

    Truly appreciate your love of crayons. My weakness is paper, any kind of paper. From pads to notebooks with college ruled sheets. From newsprint to construction paper and copy paper. I love it all because with my paper and your crayons anything is possible.

    I like it! I've always loved crayons too. Now, I just love going to Staples and looking at all the supplies. My particular fetish is colorful or printed folders. I have a folder for everything!

    I also love crayons and a coloring book.
    Even now I could pick up one of my many boxes and the fragrance alone is like nostalgic perfume to my nostrals.
    Good slice of your life
