I don't know that I have enough flesh toned colored pencils for adult content coloring.

I also have realized I did not have enough art instruction as a child. My shading skills are seriously juvenile.

My sense of humor however, totally stuck at teenage boy.

Is the reason coloring these pages is relaxing due to the tendency to shut off unimportant inner dialogue? Didn't Thurber have a story titled, "Leave Your Mind Alone"?

There's some truth to that.
Coloring, like reading or listening to music, can take you beyond the inner dialogue. Much more pleasant then counting sheep if you really can't sleep at night, too.

Growing up ---would constantly hear something along these lines whenever someone spent too much time going on and on complaining about something,
especially if it was about 'my head hurts' 'my back hurts' 'my finger hurts'.
Mean Older Brother - "Want Me to Make you Forget About your hand/elbow/finger hurting?"
Child/teen/young adult--- "Yeah!" ....eagerly waiting to learn how to make this misery go away.
Mean Older Brother -- punch him upaside the head, stomp on his toes, or hit him in the stomach. Oh well, he forgot his headache/hurt hand, didn't he?

I tried it but still can't stay within the lines, heck it's even harder now.

Practice makes perfect.
Not about staying within the lines, though.
It's about the 'doing'.

this is a little bit off the topic.

i remember in high school, my science teacher ask to draw a straight line with the hand , you don't use. i am righty, and i had use my left hand. i could draw a straight line, even a circle with my lefty hand. but i couldn't make a circle or even a square that day with my left hand. my science teacher want us to use those safety scissor to cut a square out of paper.

of course, it was a hand and eye coordination exercise that for my left hand and my eyes. both of them were sick that day.

when i was a little or even teenager, even with my right hand. i had problems coloring in the lines in those coloring books.

This is exactly how I've occupied a pretty good portion of the last 10 days.

Very few people actually know what's going on (I intend to keep it that way as long as possible), but suffice it to say that my whole world is in a state of upheaval right now and I've resorted to coloring.

I'd like to be 5 again. No problems, no worries.
