the time gardenThe Time Garden” by Daria Song is a lovely story of a young girl who finds herself inside her father’s new coo-coo clock. We see her explore a series of fantasy worlds, each one more beautiful than the last. When morning breaks and the clock coo-coos again, she wonders if her journey has all been a dream. Each scene is hand-drawn in exquisite black-and-white detail. The only thing missing is you. And your colors. the time garden

I started (adult) coloring about 6 years ago. It was calming and cathartic, and it also became a tool of meditation and prayer for me. I love that so many people are now exploring coloring as a form of relaxation or therapy or just for fun.

As adult coloring books have become more and more popular, it’s been much easier for me to find coloring books that I love, but all the choices can sometimes just end up being overwhelming. “The Time Garden” stood out to me because it’s not only a coloring book, but a story book as well. It begins and ends with words and lets your mind wonder as you color all the pages in between.

Daria’s follow-up story, The Time Chamber, is now also available.

    This is a great idea, and a much better way to unwind at the end of the day instead of going on facebook. I need to start coloring 🙂
