Ok, so I had part of an epiphany this morning, but my brain is on too many things to take it all the way. So help me out here and give me the application you see in it, if you’d be so kind.
When Zoe paints, she piles all of the colors on top of each other, in one little segment of whatever she’s painting, leaving the rest blank. This morning it was a treasure box she got for her birthday, and as she attacked the glitter paints with glee, I suggested that she not put all the colors in a little 2 inch space on the top of the box, but also paint the sides and back and front, so that 1)you could see all the colors, 2) the whole box would be covered, and 3) it wouldn’t take years to dry.
And as I explained this I had the distinct impression that there’s a lesson for me to learn in that, particularly in the whole box being covered. But my thoughts on it are swirling and won’t settle, so please share your thoughts, and we’ll see if they line up with mine.
