A few weeks ago I had picked up some veggies at the farm and that night I pulled out a head of kale. At first I noticed it was a different variety than any I had ever seen. It was short and squat like a cabbage. Then I looked at the leaves. They were a light powdery blue with perfectly symmetrical veins like water fountains. I kept thinking, what has happened to me that I’m standing here mesmerized by a kale, but it was one of the most beautiful things I had every seen. Kale.
Last week I was walking out of a store in the evening and as I walked to my car I looked up at the sky. There were these puffy clouds, matte and flat in a color that was like nothing I had ever seen before in nature, a deep periwinkle and they were set against slashes of pink sky. I stood there in the middle of the parking lot thinking, have I just never noticed, or is this the most beautiful sky ever?
This week I was taking garbage out to the can outside and this glow of red caught my eye. One of my rose bushes had started forming hips and there was this one that was the brightest plumpest shiny red.
Is this life through raw colored glasses?
