A young child began kindergarten. She progresses very well and began to take her art work home to her parents. They were puzzled, although her pictures were very creative, they were always painted in black.
The parents talked to the teacher showing great concern about the mental condition of their child. They observed the children painting as they were gathered around a table with containers of paint and paper. They noticed nothing unusual but remained concerned.
They decided to take her to a doctor, then to a neurologist, to an orthopedic specialist, to an optometrist, and finally to a therapist.
As much as these professionals tried to discover the reason the child painted only in black, they could not.
The concerned parents were discussing this one night and the older child overheard the conversation. He asked if anyone had asked the child why she painted in black. Wow, what a concept, yes, let's ask the child.
When finally asked why she only painted in black, the child simply replied...It is the only color I can reach.
Sometimes the most simple answers are the right ones.
