The Myriad Shades of Life

The colour wheel has been arranged in harmony, to suit the nature of colours and to please the eyes. Exactly like the shades of life.

We all experience life in primary colours.

There’s childhood- full of wonder and rapt.

Then comes adulthood- time for passion and ambition.

At last, comes old age- where the light starts to dim and the sound starts to fade.

But, is this all?

I would say no.

Because life also has secondary and tertiary colours, the colours you don’t know of or don’t think about.

My favourite is Lavender, the greyish purple or pinkish magenta or pale bluish indigo. For me, it is a feeling- lavender is hope and happiness.

My Lavender can be your teal or turquoise or cardinal. Life is made up of myriad shades, so live it in Myriad Shades. Sticking with the Reds and Greens and Blues doesn’t make a pretty portrait. And start living before you run out of shades.
