Today was orange. Like the leaves that cling to my feet. It was good and happy like yellow but tinged with a deeper shade of emotion. It was something of change, thick with intent but bright with hope. Today was orange in all the best ways.
I thought I hated orange, as a color that is. But today just feels so orange and it is so nice to feel anything other than the midnight that I have been feeling. I can finally see what everyone else talks about when they talk about orange. It is no longer that ugly sweater I had when I was a kid or that obnoxious shade that reminded me of construction work. No it is now something so much more beautiful than I had ever seen it be.
