Life is like a box of. . .


Life is like a box of crayons. Most people are the 8-color boxes, but what you’re really looking for are the 64-color boxes with the sharpeners on the back. I fancy myself to be a 64-color box, though I’ve got a few missing. It’s ok though, because I’ve got some more vibrant colors like periwinkle at my disposal. I have a bit of a problem though in that I can only meet the 8-color boxes. Does anyone else have that problem? I mean there are so many different colors of life, of feeling, of articulation.. so when I meet someone who’s an 8-color type.. I’m like, hey girl, magenta! and she’s like, oh, you mean purple! and she goes off on her purple thing, and I’m like, no – I want magenta!

  3. Steal away 🙂 I totally *get* what he’s saying and its relevant to some pieces of my own life right now – – I have a few 8-packs that I would love to help them see the 64-pack world view, sharpener included 😉

  4. We all humans have a peaceful soul and this body indeed is only a costume which we wear. With this one it actually does’nt matters that who has got a 8 box or a 64 box indeed!
