I had to cover a period and a half in the second grade. I sat down at a desk one-quarter my size in a chair that seemed to be even smaller, and prepared myself for a good olí fashioned coloring session. My picture was of a very introspective rabbit sitting among a pile of Easter eggs and flowers. There is something very Zen and centering about picking a perfectly hued crayon and gently shading within the thick black lines. I found it very reassuring to have such a clear purpose, even for just a few minutes. I should color more.
