I love colors.  I have many, many bottles of every kind of color.  I was thinking about something.

 

Colors are like words … words, moods, things can be expressed in colors.

 

We can use such or such color in ways to make us feel excited, calm, peaceful … or feel just plain awful.

 

But, how can I paint pain … grief?  What colors can I paint my grief in?  I have been thinking about that.

 

Would I just make a big scribble of black colors, throw some gray, brown into it?  Would that look like pain, grief?  Use all ugly, dark colors?

 

My grief couldn’t be painted that way at all, I don’t know about yours.  My grief for the loss of my only child, all my family members would have to be painted in many colors … happy, sad, mean, mad, crazy, funny … the list goes on.

 

My grief consists of all kinds of emotions all twisted together … it’s every emotion under the word … grief.  Many colors … to paint my world of grief.
