Life is Colorful

The colors of life–not just one crayon

box full–innumerable possibilities

exist to color your painting.

Close to reality or not even part of it,

you can portray what you see in

your mind.  What you can create

and make up out of nothing to

being something.

So, don’t limit your adventures

to easy, already done exits you’ve


So many more ways to break out

of a burning building when

you’re on fire with enthusiasm

Yellow Spider Mums with white branches.

Yellow Spider Mums with white branches.


Friends will say you were lucky.

You’ll laugh and know luck

had very little to do with your


Somewhere, around the corner,

awaits the gifts you’ve been

seeking & ones you didn’t even

know you wanted but have

been on a trajectory to you

for a while.

You open your arms wide, try

a new color, you’ve never even

seen before

and paint your life with it for

a while.

On the flip side of this genius,

your friends & family will wonder

whatever got into you.Cuban Lily (Scilla peruviana) The Connie Hansen Garden. Lincoln City, Oregon
