Dark, Glowing and Beautiful,
When I think of the colour brown, I think of earth and dirt. It’s not a colour that is usually used to make a child’s bedroom look bright and colourful or to make a car look sporty, but what if there is more beauty represented in this colour than we realise? If it represents dirt, what happens in dirt? Things are planted and things grow. You might be looking at this picture and wondering what does this have to do with plants or things growing, well a lot. Because it reminds me of the colour brown, at first look, it doesn’t look that inviting, it looks like a dull kind of a day, but when you look a bit closer, you see there is a beautiful ocean, the light is breaking through and there is a sense of anticipation. What if you didn’t view life through the lens of mess, dirt and stuff to be avoided, but instead as though the mess, results in a planning, the darkness comes before the dawn and as through there is hope for what will be. There is more to be thankful and hopeful for than maybe you stopped to realise. What about the very fact you can see this picture and read this blog? Now that’s something to celebrate.
