Peanut Butter (Brooke)

The way I see it there are two types of people in the world: Colorful people and noncolorful people. And no, I'm not talking about race.

Non-colorful people are one-dimentional characters without any vibrance. They are simply floating through life on the primary color spectrum, if they are lucky possibly reaching the ROY G BIV color scheme. And you may think to yourself hey those are some good colors, I mean it's got indigo and violet in it. Nope, not good enough for me. I don't want to be the person who limits themselves to seven colors.

I want to be the Crayola box that has 64 colors. I want to go to sleep "Sunset Orange" and wake up "Caribbean Green." I would also like to be able to create my own colors like maybe a "rendezvous red."

I believe everyone starts out with at least a box of 32 different colors. As we go through life people steal our crayons, our daring blues and perfect pinks get lost in the world. Most often our brightest hues get broken or are dulled by other colorless people and the world around us. We become complacent and lose our imaginations, never using new colors. We rely on old basic colors because it is safe, it is familiar.

But if we use the same colors, at the end of the day our pictures will be very lackluster, depraved of any creativity that once held such promise in our box.

I wish always to be a colorful, 64 crayon carrying person. I never want to rely solely on my primary colors
