On gray days the colors are brighter.

Yellow flower tree For most all of today, the sky was gray.  Living in Tampa, here in the Sunshine State, I can appreciate a gray day.  I don't think I could do it for very long stretches of time, though.  I do feel affected by the weather- I do love the sun.  But, the gray days can be an excuse to be more quiet, more introspective, and take naps.  And that's exactly what I did today.

On the walk I took, I spotted this tree abloom in yellow.  It made me think of my foundations art prof- Dr. Howe at UGA- he used to read and talk to us as we painted.  I always remember that he said you can see color better on a gray day.  And you do.  And I'm thankful for that.
