Color Your World

Blog 158 – Sunday, June 7, 2009 Awoke to a steady, peaceful shower which lasted about 30 minutes – sun came out, day was warm with mid-80’s temperatures.
It is likely that most have read from the list of Robert Fulghum’s "Everything I Know I Learned In Kindergarten". This most profound compilation has taken me back on more than one occasion. Today, I stumbled upon a delightful quote written by the editor himself – the idea appeals to me of course and I share its refreshing alliteration with everyone reading this blog. Think of it – now isn’t this the best idea that has come along since pet rocks or smiley faces? Imagine the effects on those who are privy to it. As for me, I am inspired and uplifted by just the thought and I hope it colors your world as well:
Maybe we should develop a crayola bomb as our next secret weapon. A happiness weapon. A beauty bomb. And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one. It would explode high in the air, explode softly and send thousands, millions of little parachutes into the air. Floating down to earth boxes of crayolas and we wouldn't go cheap either, not little boxes of eight. boxes of sixty-four, with sharpener built right in, with silver and gold and copper,magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest. And people would smile and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination.
