experience you



have you ever felt like a drab black & white photo
competing against a kaleidoscope of brilliant hues?

does it feel like your furtively lurking shadow
has more personality than you do?

is the merry go round joyously spinning
while you stand timidly watching?

if so

stand up
stand out
fight back
fight boredom
take a class
take a new path
spin a new web
spin a new life
seek the light
seek new truths
find yourself
find a way
grab onto
that merry go round
experience joy
experience life
experience you

But sometimes living in black and white instead of color is a beautiful thing. I love your black and white pics here. The "pep talk" as another commenter called it was wonderful. I also liked that it shaped a candle light. Awesome!!

That B&W veil does come over my world occasionally. I am pretty good at throwing it off.

That is wonderful.. I wish we could remove some people's heads and pour that into it.. I love those words..
