After an excellent couple of weeks, Tom and Lexi have left us, but we have another month here in Key West, before beginning our slow journey back to Colorado. Definitely loving the warmth and the color. From flowers . . .
. . . to the roosters that roam freely everywhere . . .. . . to the changing colors of the sea and sky . . .
. . . to decorations on houses . . . . . . to clothing at the neighborhood laundromat . . .. . . to the stunning sunsets for which Key West is famous . . .
. . . everything is very colorful here and I love it. LOVE it. (Okay maybe not exactly LOVING the tie-dye pants, but still.)
It makes me wonder if one of the reasons I’m not a big fan of winter is that I miss color as much as I miss light and warmth (and my comfy flip-flops, let’s be honest). If that’s true, WOOHOO, because I can fix that. I’m thinking big green salads dotted with orange bell peppers, blue china bowls heaped with shiny fresh lemons, bright red sweaters and flowers in vases . . . . Okay I’m starting to hear Julie Andrews singing in the background: ” . . . these are few of my favorite things . . . . ” so I’ll stop now!
All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites. ∼Marc Chagall
The uglier, older, meaner, iller, poorer I get, the more I wish to take my revenge by doing brilliant color, well arranged, resplendent. ∼Vincent van Gogh
One can speak poetry just by arranging colors well, just as one can say comforting things in music. ∼Vincent van Gogh
Here’s wishing you color and light and warmth during this final stretch of winter!
