  • “Rhymes in the Mornin’ and Port at Night” - Ella & Ian crafting word witchery whilst sitting at the dining room table.⁠
⁠
⁠
It's Black and White week here at The Spur Trail because, well, I love it.  Some images truly speak more when you only have form, composition and texture to focus on.  And perhaps if you didn't know this about me, I have a slight color weakness in my wonderful eyeballs.⁠
⁠
To be honest I don't completely understand it.  I'm not color-BLIND per se, but that reds and greens and colors that contain them can be harder to ascertain than for the normal person.  I've noticed this a lot clothes shopping with friends or playing board games where the color-coded pieces or cards kind of just look the same to me.  From time to time I may have also killed some friends in Halo thinking they were a different color than they were.⁠
⁠
The point, if there is one, is that it may help explain my affinity for the monochrome.  And for excessively aggressively bright colors like orange.⁠
⁠
So if you haven't been a fan of the colorless in the past, take the next few days to give it a shot.  You might get hooked.⁠
⁠
Oh and just so I know so that maybe I can practice identifying them for when we next get together...what's your favorite color?⁠

  • “You are never dedicated to something you have complete confidence in. No one is fanatically shouting that the sun is going to rise tomorrow. They know it's going to rise tomorrow. When people are fanatically dedicated to political or religious faiths or any other kinds of dogmas or goals, it's always because these dogmas or goals are in doubt.” -  Robert M. Pirsig⁠
