Mare Crismis

My brother-in-law, his wife and family stayed at The Idea Loft during the Thanksgiving Holiday. I made sure there were art paper and markers available to keep the children occupied during their stay. After they left, I noticed this piece amidst the many drawings their three daughters produced––

This is a brilliant drawing. Brilliant because:

  • It’s authentic. It was made to express its creator’s feelings about the season. My niece Millie didn’t draw this for money, to win a prize, to keep her job, or to compete with her siblings. She made it because she wanted to make it and because she was moved to make it.
  • It’s original. The colors Millie chose are not the usual Christmas colors of red and green. The Christmas tree is colored brown and yellow. The mix hints of gold.
  • It’s bold. Millie colored “outside of the lines!” She didn’t use a spell-checker!

This drawing fits the attitude of what this website stands for. Please accept it as my greeting card to you this Holiday Season. Here’s trusting that now and in the year to come, you choose to activate your brilliance by being authentic, original and bold in all you do. Merry Christmas.
