The Journey Is Long (Part II)

   Pick a color. Any color and make it your favorite color for the year. Arbitrary is a good way to go. Put names of colors in a hat and pick one. Think in that color. Dream in it. For one year at which point it expires and you have to pick another color. It will be like a semi-permanent tattoo, worn everywhere, shed in a year. Change it on your birthday, or New Year's Day.

Someone has to ring the bell

"I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to death your right to say it." Voltaire Since a long time, I thought it’d be unfair to draw such comparisons.
