Give a Child a Crayon…Give an Adult a Crayon

You handed a child a crayon, and, before you can give the kid the rules (i.e. color inside the lines, DON’T draw on the walls, etc., etc., etc.), s/he is already, exercising her/his CREATIVE genius.

And, you give an adult a crayon, the person thinks to her/himself, WHAT, do you want me to do with this? I’m not a kid you know!!!

exercising their artistic “talents” here, NOT my photo…

And from this, we can see??? How different the minds of adults and children worked: the children see what CAN be possible, while the adults have a tendency, to be, restrained by what they already know.

Give a child a crayon, and, s/he will be very happy, because, the crayon became, some sort of a reward, but, give an adult a crayon, s/he may just, toss it into the trash, because, coloring at OUR age? You’ve GOT to be SHITTING me, there are, MORE important things we need to handle, you know???

So, how does this same crayon (maybe in different colors???) have these separate SETS of reactions to them? Because the child knows very little, and so, s/he is, easily satisfied, and, because NO boundaries had been placed (save for don’t color on the walls, only use paper, etc., etc., etc.), s/he is able to, exercise that artistic talent that s/he has. Whereas for an adult, as we grow up, we’d become, more and more complicated, with our tendencies to overinterpret the meanings of things around us, making life even HARDER than it already is.

coloring, between the boundaries of these lines, NOT my photograph…

The point is: would you rather be easily satisfied like that child with a crayon? Or, would you, be upset, when something irrelevant to your lives had been, handed to you???
