Do you remember the puzzle in magazines called "Hidden Pictures?" Highlights magazine for children still publishes the Hidden Pictures pages. Great fun. Sometimes when I want a break from "adult art" or writing I get a coloring book and crayons and color as if I'm eight years old again. Don't forget to smell the crayons. This scent and motion of putting color to paper will relax you and you may also be surprised to find answers to a problem, or solutions to finishing that creative project while you color. I keep a pad and pen close by to record ideas for other projects that surface while I'm coloring.
Once in a while I buy a children's magazine. Yes I go to the hidden pages puzzles first. I drew a few of my own. I've included one because it may be too difficult to view on-line. But if you're up to squinting for the challenge see if you can find the hidden pictures. Have fun and say hello to the eight year old you for me.
