Yes, this space does not get updated often anymore. But here– I got you this bright red ribbon. Now, doesn’t that make it all better?
I’m not sure what it is about the color red that brings happiness and danger to life. Scientists would simply argue that it’s nothing but the wavelength of the color that stimulates the brain and make it take notice.
Dangerous things are red.
Mouths are red.
Ruby slippers are red.
Target is red.
Figurative hearts and real blood, red, red.
And so, red. The color commands attention.
And we all need attention. Some of us, desperately so.
But really, all of us do. We all should wrap ourselves in a big red sash and not wait to be opened up; but instead, peel our layers back and enjoy the gift and the surprise of being.
Just please don’t make this an invitation to strip in public. I mean, go ahead– just don’t tell anyone I told you to do it; I’m not encouraging you.
But if you’re going to do it anyway, please let us know so we can go and watch.
