Stand up for a color that gets no respect.
The afternoon sky was laced with a bit of fog and some light rain, but these stalks of grass stood tall and thin against the sea breeze. I've always been an admirer of late season grasses, as I drive back and forth to work. There are various places along my short trip that make for quick glances at fields waving at me in subtle shades, from dull almost yellows to that dark, recluse pigment. Brown seems like such a dull color. Few sports teams want to take on its hues. It's a tough color to sell. It seldom makes an appearance in million dollar ad campaigns that bombard us daily. But I type before you this morning and preach to long live the colorant brown in all its tones.
Give brown a second look.
Check it out today on your maneuvers through your world.
