Unfettered

First grade.

Mimeographed worksheet.

Words—red, green, blue, yellow—beside 2-inch circles.

Crayons.

Directions: read the words and color the circles accordingly.

No problem. Know my colors. Know how to use a crayon.

Oh, but maybe not. No back-and-forth permitted. I am redirected: Color in a circular motion only.

What?!

This afternoon: the unmitigated contentment of scribbling with colored pencils and wax pastels any which way I want.
