Currie's Gratitude 4 October 2014

They sang the words in unison, yet somehow created a web of sounds with their voices. It was like hearing a piece of fabric woven with all the colors of a rainbow. I did not know that such beauty could be formed by the human mouth. I had never heard harmony before.  [Anita Diamant, The Red Tent]

It would BE hard for me to say that colour is NOT an essential food group in my Life. I love to see what happens when colours stand alone or run like a pack, eager and open to possibilities.

I am continually amazed and astonished by how colour changes everything. Its edges and drips and long swashes. It is like a heart beating, separate but in time with my own.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.   [Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds]

We’re funny we humans. We get our minds set on a thing, looking at stuff a certain way, and we’re never eager to change that perspective.

Still, it is quite a thing how making even a tiny shift in our way of seeing and BEing can make everything suddenly and completely new, alive, and quite awake, no matter the light outside.

Try it yourself, okay?!

I love you, Currie

So very true. Perspective and attitude are everything. :)
