COMING IN SECOND: ANOTHER COLORING BOOK STORY
When TheBoy was six, his parents moved from the little house on the sandhill to his grandmother’s house. TheBoy’s first grade teacher, whom he loved, also boarded with his grandmother. One evening TheBoy and his mother had a coloring contest in his favorite coloring book. When the two had finished coloring facing pages they asked Miss H to come down from her room to pick the winner. “Which page is best?” Miss H considered carefully and chose TheBoy’s mother’s page. TheBoy was wounded! He had done his very most careful coloring, he had stayed within the lines; his coloring was bolder! He convinced himself that Miss H knew his style, and although his page was best, his teacher, whom he loved, had chosen TheMother’s page to gain her favor. [The drawing is a detail from a 1998 visual journal page.]
