Writing On The Dock of The Bay

Color has a power which directly influences the soul. - Wassily Kandinsky

Sitting on the dock with my coffee in the mellow autumn sun, I savor this extraordinary light, the golden feeling of time well spent.  And in the autumn of my life, I've learned that orange - a color of zest, creativity and ripeness - the color of Halloween and the SF Giants, is a healing color with its warmth and feel of plenty, with its bright offering that life is here for the taking. Part of every sunset, and each sunrise as well, orange is a color of harvest - healing any wounds of the year in its 10th month; readying us for an ending that makes way for a new beginning, allowing us to float in the contentment of reflection; a sweet period of rest, solace and rejuvenation, before we close one portal so that we may open another.
