Does it take a gray day to notice or be more aware of the things that lighten a day?
Would I have noticed the bright orange leaf, which had gently floated onto my raindrop-splattered car window?
Or the pretty red squirrel that dashed across the street as I was coming home?
Or the fun of the wrapping on my mini chocolate?
If the sun had been shining, perhaps that would have distracted me from noticing those touches of
Lightness: no matter, I did see them and greatly rejoiced in those splashes of color on a gray day.
