Like most little kids, my daughter Kate loved coloring books. She'd scribble all over them, and I'd applaud her brilliance.
Then, one horrific day, she started drawing inside the lines.
I was distraught. My free-spirited child had been compromised by society's creativity-snuffing rules and regulations.
For consolation, I turned to an artist friend, Nancy, a good and gentle soul.
"Jan," she said quietly. "That's fine -- it's part of the process. Kate has to learn to draw inside the lines, so she can choose to draw outside."
It's your day. What's your choice?
