Crayola bomb and free images...

Maybe we should develop a Crayola bomb as our next secret weapon.... A happiness weapon...

...A beauty bomb...

And every time a crisis developed, we would launch one.... It would explode high in the air, explode softly... and send thousands, millions, of little parachutes into the air....

...Floating down to earth boxes of Crayolas...

And we wouldn't go cheap, either. Not little boxes of eight.
Boxes of sixty-four, with the sharpener built right in.
With silver and gold and copper, magenta and peach and lime, amber and umber and all the rest.
And people would smile...

...and get a little funny look on their faces and cover the world with imagination!!

That post was so fun! Not everyday do you read something so prolific.
I hope someday, the crayola bomb, would land in my yard in the snow and make everything green!
I hope: the crayola bomb would land on my head to keep my hair blonde! And I hope someday when that crayola bomb lands it will land in each one of my rooms and presto .. make them the colours I love so much.. in every room.
