When you’re a kid, you color with reckless abandon.
You color outside the lines.
You color however you feel.
Blue elephants, purple trees, red bears, green oceans — it’s all good.

As you get older, though, everyone tells you to stay inside the lines, to color everything just like you see it. You end up painting by numbers — wether you actually paint or wether you write or sing or dance or act or direct.

I think you should create what you feel. Create outside the lines. I want to watch green oceans and red bears. I’d love to listen to purple trees. And I long to read blue elephants.
