Who Remembers These?? As a child, I loved paint-by-number art kits, because a novice like me could pick up a paint brush and create a masterpiece. First, I painted all the number 1s brown, and then I painted all the number 2s black, and so on… Eventually, it looked somewhat like a kitten. Don’t begrudge the days of small things. Maybe for today, just paint all the number ones. Tomorrow is a new day.
