Sometimes, you just need to get away. I have found a playground I like; it is called The Websafe Times. There are virtual characters there, including web talk show host Celia Gray, who made this design for me. It is called Pattern in Up to Eight Colors. I had to ask her very nicely if I could take it home with me; the first time she gave me a square, she very quickly took it back, but I think we are friends now.
The Websafe Times also has an interactive whiteboard where you can draw with other people. It's a fun place to visit. I have been spending too much time there.
