like music has rhythm, harmony and balance. Like our ears, which hear
only a portion of the sounds in the entire spectrum, our eyes see only a
fraction of the intense colours alive in our world.
An entire orchestra of pure, vibrant colour surrounds us,
pulsating with such intensity, that it reaches beyond our limited
ability to see and comprehend.
We can only imagine
this vision of colour, this absolute, pure, vibrant colour, so alive, so
radiant and so intense. Colours that live just beyond our grasp. We live
in a world of reds, blues, and yellows, with illusions of black and
white. As I look about me, I see greens and browns, grays and blues,
yellows and tans. How brilliant the red and purple flowers stand out
from the mundane world they are trapped in.
I feel as if I
shall explode if I do not taste the pure brilliance of colour with my
eyes. We are so limited in
our gray tones when there is so much more waiting just beyond the tips
of our fingers. How I ache to reach out and touch it. To open my soul
and bathe my entire being in that glorious liquid light of colour till I
become colour in its purest form.
