coloring & talking
During a group conversation last night, we colored Celtic mandalas while we pondered and answered questions about our lives. Several folks appreciated the coloring: it involves other parts of the brain, and it gives us something to focus on, so we feel less self-conscious. Our Young Adult Cons always included one of those giant color-it-yourself posters, and several packages of markers. You can choose your level of participation; you are creating beauty; and it is a low-stress way of interacting with others. There should be more coloring in the world.
