Was it just me, or was 2018 one of those years? You know, when the days on the calendar keep turning, but the world doesn’t…
Well, not for me anyway. I spent most of last year feeling like a spectator in my own (personal) life. Watching things unfold from the sidelines. I mean…nothing majorly bad happened, but then nothing spectacularly good occurred either. If I coloured in last year, it would be…erm, mostly beige.
For a monkey mind like me, this is not actually a great state of affairs. If wine is not involved, time spent mulling produces spiky notes instead of spicy ones. And beige is certainly not my shade of choice!
I’ve decided that this year, I am holding the palette and the pens! Monochrome may be the filter through which I observe life, the universe and everything, but in my heart I most certainly am a purple girl. Exciting times? Colour those days scarlet…Fun with friends? Those would be mauve. Happiness? Violet, of course!
Days may be numbers, but in 2019 days of beige are most certainly numbered. My inner crayons are not for sharing with people who love blandness. You have been warned!
