Bein’ this colorful is NOT for kids

Charcoal and lampblack: these were the only two colors the company that would grow to become Crayola Crayons produced when it was founded in 1864. Today, the children who use Crayola-brand products can choose from more than 96 different colors, including Azure, Laser Lemon, and Razzmatazz. What child isn’t glad to be alive in such a vibrant age?

Like a box of crayons, we are all born with an astounding range of color options, from Mauvelous to Tickle Me Pink. We can paint our lives as brightly or dimly as we choose. But through life, some of us lose or wear down some of our more dazzling colors, living each and every day as if it were either charcoal or lampblack.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Nor should it. “Use All the Crayons!” is your uplifting, humorous and spiritual guidebook about how to make every day as vivacious as Atomic Tangerine to illuminate even our most lampblack days.
