“It’s hard to stay mad when there is so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much- my heart fills up like a balloon that is about to burst. And then I remember to relax and stop trying to hold on to it. And then it flows through me like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude, for every single moment of my stupid little life.”
We live in a beautiful world where color coats everything it touches. I appreciate all colors and the variation that exists, but there is something special about red. It has the power to ignite emotions. It demands your attention. It represents love as much as it does anger and rage. It’s a sexual color as much as it appears to radiate heat. Red tells you to stop as much as it represents speed. It’s a Christmas color and is associated with one of happiest times of the year as much as it is blood and gore. It’s red and it’s powerful.
