It seems I love a blogging challenge, enough to jump back on the band wagon. So here we are at a grey/gray colour/color theme for this week’s #Sundaystills hosted by Terri here at https://secondwindleisure.com/.
My second sentence leads into a rather rhetorical question. The regional, area and country wide idiosyncrasies that arise in our very strange language of English. Why did the U.S.A drop the “u” in all those words that the “rest” of us kept from our colonial background? Which, of course, brings me to things like bunny hugs and hoodies. Or perhaps y’all and eh and hey and whatever other words we all throw around without even realizing it. Purely rhetorical but hey if you want to wade into a monologue or an explanation of interesting words go for it. Knock your socks off.
Now to get back to the challenge I don’t have any grey socks but I had great grey hair. Alas it’s white now so I think I will include a picture of the beautiful colour that I sported for a good two decades. I think you can see from the photo why I am white haired now! This picture was taken in the spring of 2014 when my mom and I did a family tour of our Ontario relatives. It was a special trip and although that photo makes it look like a grey day we actually had great weather.
Staring below, in no particular order, are random photos that “read” grey to me along with a poem that just seemed to enter into being after I saw the photos I had picked.
A cherished smile
Shadows of loves,
Memories of old,
Blue skies of home
Patina of wood
Gifts from the heart
Colours of greyBLC May 21, ’21
So there you have my take on grey and while it might not be my favourite (there’s that u again!) colour I like the direction this challenge took me. A bit random but that’s sort of my mind set these days so it seemed to work.
