510212421_edae6743aaSo the other day I just had one of those days.   Classes, colleagues, review books – if it could go wrong or  bite my head off, it did.  At the end of the day I sat down at my desk and saw a box of 72 colouring pencils.  And decided to sharpen them.

All of them.

By hand.

And by the end, they were sharp, beautiful, usable, and my spirits had lifted way up.  Who’d have thunk it?  Thank you Crayola (or actually, Texta, in this case).

Do you have moments of therapy that just calm you right down, expected or otherwise?

I live in Seattle, Washington and work as a legal assistant. I remember learning to read (comic strips) at a young age and nowadays try to read about 5-6 books a week. I love to travel, especially to Europe, and enjoy exploring smaller towns off the tourist track though London is my favorite city in the world.
