Loretta's Mom Doris always loved to color, but as her dementia progressed she became frustated with the typically small coloring spaces in most coloring books. With her Mom's help Loretta developed large designs that make it easier for those with mid to late stage dementia to continue their joy of coloring. The book was published in February 2019, the month that Doris turned 90 years old and contains thirty designs that she selected. After Doris happily declared that colors were flowing from her mind as she colored, it became the perfect title for their coloring book.
