start with orange, end with love

All colors make my soul sing. Orange is amongst my favorites. Purple, turquoise, magenta and lime green round out my top five. It's hard to rank them, but I'll always claim purple as number one. 

This orange skirt I wore today (found on sale, super cheap), has made me happy since the day I bought it. The bright color brings me joy. I found it at the end of last winter, when I particularly needed a lift. A gift. 

And these kitties, my son's favorites, bring me joy as well, seeing the joy they bring him. 

But nothing makes my soul sing like creating, like the practice of making something where there was nothing. Bringing new words, new images, new ideas, new ways of mixing them together into the world. 

(A new person, that one time.)

And love.
