COLORING INSIDE THE LINES BY KAITLIN KEGG
When I was a kid, I thrived on creativity. I played make believe, I put together my own shows and put them on for my parents, and all of my stuffed animals had names and personalities. I built legos, I made things out of popsicle sticks, and I made ball gowns out of blankets.
As I’ve gotten older I have disappointed myself.
I can’t see the ball gowns in my perfectly folded blankets, I’d rather sort the legos according to color and size, and I can’t hear the voices from my stuffed animals.
As a performing artist, when anxiety has taken all sense of creativity and ability to think outside of the box and take risks, what are you supposed to do?
I’m learning to color again, inside the lines.
