Color defines our world in a way you cannot describe.

How do you define color?

If you had to explain yellow to a blind man, what would you say?

Would you say; warmth? like rays of sun that break through the clouds.

Would you say; smile? like a childs first laugh.

 

If you had to explain blue to a blind man, what would you say?

Would you say; melancholy? like a teardrop sliding down a babe’s cheek

Would you say; peace? like a cool spring breeze in the silence of emotion

 

If you had to explain red to a blind man, what would you say?

Would you say; passion? like love that knows no bounds

Would you say; hate? like a furious storm of sleet

 

Color is described with emotion as is life. So is it not plain to state that life is threads of color that weave together? Forming a tenacious tapestry of our lives?


What is the color that is most vibrant in your life? What color would you say best describes you?
