Episode 67: A Happy Thing for Every Color in the Rainbow


Mr. Roy G. Biv, paging Mr. Roy G. Biv? We make our way around the color wheel, and explore all kinds of colorful happinesses. The best color, as always, is your own personal favorite -- whatever that might be. 

A red trolley, clanging its way up a steep hill in San Francisco.

A swipe of red lipstick on an overcast day.

The heart-shaped box of chocolates you get on sale after Valentine’s Day.

An orange creamsicle, right out of the freezer.

Your favorite tangerine colored sweater your grandmother made you, cozy and itchy.

A glass of orange juice made from home grown oranges, so good you want another one right away.

A freshly sharpened pencil, your fingers wrapped around it, ready to write.

A lemon tree outside your kitchen window, so close you could lean out and pick one.

Yellow rain boots splashing into the middle of a puddle.

Driving through a forest at midday, the sun brightening every single leaf.

Cutting up a lime to garnish a lightly sweetened drink.

A chorus of green frogs croaking loudly after a vigorous rainfall.

The ocean when seen from an airplane, impossibly blue and endless.

Brand new blue jeans, sturdy and supple all at once.

Spotting a bluebird through binoculars, following it as it flits away.

Fields of lavender, the smell so calming you could fall asleep right there.

A dozen Irises in a vase, standing tall and regal.

A bright purple chunk of amethyst, glinting in the sunlight.

Puffy white clouds, lazily strewn across the sky.

Cream colored Swans gliding effortlessly on a lake.

A row of blackbirds huddled together on a telephone wire.

The blackest night sky, without a star to be seen.
