For Christmas, back in 2015, one of my sisters gave me a lovely coloring book and some fancy colored pencils. It’s one of those adult coloring books. [No… not that kind of ‘adult’!]


I forgot it existed until a few weeks ago.


It’s supposed to be relaxing… ‘Color Your Way to Calm‘. I guess I’m pretty mellow while I’m coloring…


I’ve been having a lot of ‘run-away-and-start-a-new-life‘ dreams lately… but I’d settle for a trip. A long break. From everything.


If I could leave tomorrow… if I could escape… if I could…


But… I’m left with just the dreams. Maybe it’s better to imagine… because in my mind, I can be anywhere… with anyone… or no one. I can be young and free and hungry for life. And crepes.


And I can hide… until I don’t want to hide anymore. Maybe that is calming…

  3. I have one of those colouring books! But from the Scottish Artist – it’s a forest one. It doesn’t really calm me down, though. Just makes me anxious because I don’t possess enough shades of green when every single page is just leaves and more leaves. haha

    I’m obsessed with the coloring books. I have to admit it is very time consuming.
