Hello and welcome to the first day of a brand spanking new year. Nice of you to call in. I'll try again with an answer to this question.Terra28 December 2014 at 03:55
Some years I choose a word for the year, do you ever do that?
Thanks Terra. I haven't thought about doing this, but now you come to mention it, yes, I will. The first word that came to mind as I was out for a morning walk was COLOUR, so that is my chosen word. I will open my eyes and look for colour every day. Even if the world looks grey and gloomy I will search for colour where I least expect it. I will try and find colour where there is none. It isn't hard when you walk around a pretty village, there are little pockets of colour everywhere.
I pass these beautiful purple berries on my way to the church. They seem to last ages, but look closely, some of them are beginning to shrivel a bit and lose their colour.
It's a hard job he has, there are three avenue's of trees to cut back, it will take him a while. If he does one a day it will probably take him to the end of the month.
They look pretty ugly when they have been butchered, but they will come back.
Colour blindness must be quite difficult to cope with, I'm sorry if you have this problem. I have worked as a fundraiser for the RNIB so have a little understanding of visual impairment. If you are in this category, and you can't see very well, please join in and let us know what other senses you use to bring a little colour into your life. I would be very interested to know.
Have you chosen a word for the year, share it with us, please.
Thank you for all your comments and emails over the last few days. Enjoy the rest of today.
