Light

From first til last the light was special.

On occasion, whilst driving through the Devon countryside, I marvel at the strikingly vibrant hues as I whizz pass field and garden.  Then, slightly disappointed, I remember that I have my sunglasses on and what I am seeing is just an enhancement of the truth.

Today, sans shades, all around me seemed especially colourful.  Strong but not harsh, fresh and buzzing with energy.  As if, overnight, someone had polished my retinas.

The blue was blue, the white was white, the green was green and the orange, well the orange needed an accompanying health warning.

  1. Are you sure you’re not still (mentally) in the vibrant land across the border? Your memory may be running in delayed action mode. As the gin effect wears off!

    And had I known in advance that you were just “up the road” I would have risen from my (new) chair to greet you. Incidentally, they don’t! Yet! 🙂
