“Mom I feel kind of strange…”

More often than not I hear this from my boy Judah in the evening. This time of night where he jumps around his room making crazy sound effects and I suspect he’s looking for sensory input. At this point I’m in bed and tired so my usual response is, “Read a book son.” On this particular night a book wouldn’t do, so I suggested he draw a picture of how he is feeling. I told him don’t worry about subject matter, just make lines and shapes to release the energy you have boiling inside you.

This is what he created, colored….
