a day of color

“Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways. ”

“Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. Just as one can never learn how to paint.”

― Pablo Picasso

People observe the colors of a day only at its beginnings and its ends, but to me it's quite clear that a day merges through a multitude of shades and intonations, with each passing moment. A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spat blues. Murky darknesses. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them. ”

― Markus Zusak, The Book Thief

“Love has a shape, but no color. You’re probably wondering, “If it’s transparent, how do you know what shape it is?” Good question. Well, for one thing, I put it together, and for another, I’m currently wearing it like body armor (though to the casual observer, I appear naked).

― Jarod Kintz, This is the best book I've ever written, and it still sucks

Hi Sixpence,

Love all the pretty pictures and quotes. Nothing like the colour of Autumn leaves on the trees and ground.

Enjoy the weekend

Unbelievabel! A warm and glorious day yesterday, 82 degrees, sleet and 30 degrees today? What a difference a day makes, huh. :)

Have a beautiful day!
